Welcome from Paul Elam

It is a great personal pleasure for me to welcome the publishers and readers of menshumanrightsireland.org to the growing worldwide community of men and women taking a clear, public stand on the issues facing men and boys in modern culture.

I have become acquainted with the work of the individuals mastering this website and can personally attest they are among the brightest, most compassionate and well-balanced people in our movement, as well as possessing the courage to speak the truth without flinching.

This website will be a critically important resource for the Irish people. While most or all of the issues affecting men and boys are now global, each country has its own unique identity, cultural factors, history and local politics that make those issues, and their solutions, unique.

This makes menshumanrightsireland.org a standalone advocacy platform for Irish men and boys, and the women who care about what is happening to them.

I encourage everyone reading this to please support this site and to help carry its message to the good people of Ireland.
