Damages for 2 year old boy restrained in a creche chair.

Damages for 2 year old boy restrained in a creche chair.

An eight-year-old boy who as a baby attended a creche mentioned in an RTÉ exposé documentary on the treatment of pre-school children has settled his High Court action for €30,000.

The boy was under two years of age when it is claimed footage of the RTÉ A Breach of Trust documentary showed him being allegedly strapped into a chair for two hours at the Giraffe creche, Belarmine, Stepaside, Co Dublin.

In the High Court yesterday Mr Justice Garret Simons approved a settlement of €30,000 in the boy’s case.

It is claimed the footage showed the boy was allegedly restrained in a chair for two hours on one day.
