In 1994 the Board made 8 adoption orders for Irish children with special needs due to physical or mental disability . A judgment by the European Court of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, delivered in May 1994, addressed the position of a natural father of a non-marital child in the Irish adoption process. The Court found that the rights of the father concerned under the convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms had been violated by the adoption of his child without his knowledge or consent and without his having a right of hearing in the proceedings. The Board noted that, while changes were effected in its practice and in the practice of agencies by reference to the judgment , there was no change in the law by the year's end. The Board calls for legislation to address this issue at an early date.
