Welcome to the Unmarried and Separated Parent's of Ireland website
It is with deep regret that the time has come for me to finish up after 18yrs offering advice and support to the many thousands of people that availed of an invaulable service given by myself and the other members of this Group.
This site is dedicated to Eugene Finane (R.I.P.) who spent many long days and nights building and compiling the content contained within it will be retained as an information site only in his memory.
Please read over the many pages and information contained in the side bars of each page where there is a wealth of documents and information that may assist you.
Over the years many many good people have passed through the meetings and office.
Many many friendships have come from the good interactions in the group and the difference we have made to many giving them a new true self worth and sense of purpose toward themselves and how to address many of the issues peratining to their Marriage or Relationship breakdown.
It is an end to an Era and a struggle over the years to make changes in the Law , the Social attitude and the Courts towards the needs of Men . Women and Children caught up in Family breakdowns.
The system has failed many good Men , Women and Children who have ended up Homeless , dependent on Alcohol / Drugs and on many occasions driven to Despair and Suicide.
To all those who have departed from us may they Rest in Peace.
Please browse through the 6 Sections on the Site Map above there are a number of sub folders contained in each section

An important announcement
Eamonn Quinn will be finishing up assisting with the meetings.
He will be finishing up permanently in Tallaght in July 2018 and the Office will be closing.
After 18 years the time has come to retire from the Voluntary support I have offered and the many people I have helped.( We have Helped )
As there is nobody to take over the Office the other support staff are not in a position to carry on nor do they want to keep the office open.
In other words this Organisation will no longer exist in it's present form .
There are many members that have given up a lot of their time and support to this group over the years and without them it would not have been as successful as it was.
To all the members I would like to thank them for their help and support for myself and the many people that came to us for help in whatever difficulties they presented with.
|Volunteers are not Paid
Not because they are useless
It's because they are Priceless.
