A report launching today details the key findings from a two-year long research project exploring the experiences of transgender and gender diverse (TGD) youth in second-level schools in Ireland.

The study was co-funded by the Irish Research Council and Marie Skłowdowska-Curie Actions as part of the “Collaborative Research Fellowships for a Responsive and Innovative Europe” (CAROLINE) programme.

The research was a collaboration between the School of Education, University of Limerick and Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI).

The project team consisted of Dr Ruari-Santiago McBride (Research Fellow), Dr Aoife Neary (Principal Investigator and Academic Mentor), Dr Breda Gray (Consultative Academic Mentor) and Vanessa Lacey (Secondment Mentor).

The full report is available here.
