A local youth worker says more needs to be done to educate young people on the introduction of new laws.

However Caolán Faux, the director of Youth Work Ireland Cavan-Monaghan said it wasn't surprising to hear this research, and estimated that it'd be a similar or higher percentage across all age groups.

He told Shannonside Northern Sound that it comes down to how laws are discussed.
