    Shocking that they have to do this, but what’s more shocking is that men in Donegal who are victims of domestic abuse have to hide in the shadows due to shame.

    As another woman lies dead at the hands of her partner, funding gets taken from people trying to prevent it.

    This is a shame. There needs to be a consolidation of all the individual small and larger DV service providers for women to optimise the money in the pot, lower admin costs, and make best use of the funding.
