There was a sharp increase in the number of women and children seeking support from domestic violence services during the first six months of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

New figures show an average of almost 2,000 women and 411 children were in receipt of some kind of support from domestic violence services – such as a refuge, counselling, accompaniment, information or advice – each month since last March.

Marie Mulholland, Coordinator of the West Cork Women Against Violence Project, joined Andrea on the show.
