According to the country’s Children’s Minister, next year will see the publication of research into legislation on a ban of the practice.

The Irish Examiner reported that in response to a question from Social Democrat TD Gary Gannon in parliament, Roderic O’Gorman emphasised the government’s desire to ban conversion therapy. “The Programme for Government contains a commitment to legislate to end the practice of conversion therapy, an objective I strongly support,” he explained.

O’Gorman added that “a scoping paper on research into conversion therapy in February 2021″ had been created by his department.
