Lenihan launches kids news service

The Minister of State at the Department of Health and Children, Brian Lenihan, has announced that a new national news service for children will be introduced early next year.

The service is a joint venture between RTÉ and the National Children's Office.

It will be aimed at children between seven and twelve years of age and will carry national and international stories.

The news service will also have some input from children themselves.
