540 children have been waiting over a year to access vital mental healthcare.

In total, there are nearly 4,200 patients on the waiting list for the Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service.

It provides treatment for young people with moderate to severe difficulties.

Dr Maeve Doyle, from the College of Psychiatrists of Ireland, says the service has a huge shortage of staff.
