TV appearance

10 Year old Oisin Mulhall Wallace became a local hero in Carrigallen last week after he featured on an RTE documentary Children in Charge Irelands young carers on Tuesday Nov 23. Oisin was one of four young carers who featured in the documentary from across the country. Little is known about Ireland's young carers, they are invisable in the eyes of the state, yet every day throughout Ireland young people quietly care for sick or disabled relatives bound by bonds of love and loyalty. Children in Charge Ireland's young carers revealed for the first time the reality of what life is like when a child takes on the role of caring for an parent. The documentary gave voice to Oisin and the 3 other carers who have taken on responsibility for their parents care years before they should have to. Oisin was the perfect interviewee. Young Oisin was hailed a hero by all his friends at school in Carrigallen the day after the documentary and a hero he most certainly is. So say all of us. You can view the documentary in the factual section of the RTE player online.
