Please note, we are a completely voluntary, unfunded group and are currently overwhelmed with queries.  Therefore, we apologise that we cannot respond directly to every email, particularly those that can be answered via our FAQs or Search and Reunion page.   

We encourage you to join our peer support group on Facebook which is at the following address: https://www.facebook.com/groups/adoptionrightsalliance/ Membership is vetted and the group is only open to those who have a genuine connection to Irish adoption.  If you are concerned about privacy, you are welcome to join under a pseudonym but please get in touch with us to let us know what it is so we can admit you to the group.

If you are a prospective adoptive parent seeking information on how to adopt, please do not email us.  We suggest you investigate long-term fostering as a more child-centred alternative.

If you need to contact us, please do feel free to do so and we hope that our auto-responder email will be of assistance to you in the meantime.

“In all of us there is a hunger, marrow-deep, to know our heritage, to know who we are and where we have come from. Without this enriching knowledge, there is a hollow yearning . . . and the most disquieting loneliness." 

Alex Haley, Author of Roots
