Irish sex cyber chat
An NUI Maynooth study also found 17pc of children had been victims of bullying, while almost one in 10 admitted carrying it out. The study among Irish second-level students aged 12 to 18 found cyber-bullying usually goes on for one to two weeks, but can last for several years.Proportionately, more younger (30pc) than older (10pc) participants were likely to become the victims of bullying.Last weekend Lara Burns Gibbs (12) took her life at home in Kilcock, Co Kildare. The work done by Padraig Cotter and Sinead Mc Gilloway of the Department of Psychology at NUI Maynooth is published in the 'Irish Journal of Education'.Their research covered four categories of cyber-bullying: text, picture or video clip, phone calls and emails.Research has previously tended to be conducted in urban regions.Culture differences may also be a factor, with lower incidences of traditional bullying found in Ireland when compared with other countries such as England and Australia.
They also feared the potentially large audience who could view the bullying, such as those who may view a picture or video clip.
When the victim opened the email, she found sexually explicit photos of herself attached and information that detailed where she worked.
