Kelley Johnson and Rob Hopkins worked with Ger Minogue,  Joe McGrath,  Marie Deeley,  Martin Corry,  Patrick Kearney, Kathleen O’Leary and Pauline Skehan - researchers with the Clare Inclusive Research Group of the Brothers of Charity Clare Services - on the chapter giving an Irish perspective to this international production.   Drawing extensively on personal experiences, this important volume looks at sexuality and relationships in the lives of people with intellectual disabilities, painting a genuine picture of the range of sexualities and relationships people want. Honest and reflective, it shows how sexuality has been managed and controlled in different countries. It explores a range of issues such as rights, resilience, protection, sexual oppression and the lack of privacy for those living in care institutions. Co-edited and with contributions by people with intellectual disabilities and allies, this unique book offers an authentic account of the challenges people face and what society needs to do to respect people's rights.

Providing insight into a morally, ethically and legally complex area, this book will be essential reading for people with intellectual disabilities, their advocates, families and supporters; social care managers, social workers, and other professionals working in the field as well as academic researchers and students.
