Donna Lyons and Donal Lyons

Vol_7_Issue_2_Article_2

This article considers the “right to identity” provisions in the Children and Family Relationships Act 2015 and their adequacy in guaranteeing to the donor-conceived child the right to access identifying donor information in this jurisdiction. The article presents the findings of a study conducted by the authors which investigates the perspectives of donor-conceived individuals on the importance or otherwise of access to identifying information prior to what is at present the legal age of maturity in Ireland. The principal research method used in this article is empirical in nature, with doctrinal research being drawn upon as a complement to the empirical research.
