The vast majority of my friends are 30-45, and with a few exceptions, they only became politically aware around the time of the UN Security Council 2nd Resolution back in 2003. That was the turning point for so, so many people that I'm close to.
Of my experience growing up in Ireland I would say constitutional referenda is what pulls a lot of young people in as it appeals to their ideals and aspirations from the country rather than party politics. Certainly last years referendum on gay rights raise political awareness to a new hight among young people.
