Domestic Abuse In Men

When people hear of domestic abuse cases, many are often quick to place the blame on the man.

But shocking new research has found that up to eighty eight thousand men across Ireland have been severely abused by a partner at some point in their lives, despite only five per cent actually reporting domestic abuse to the Gardaí.

These worrying statistics have now paved the way for a new helpline, which has been launched this week, designed specifically to support male victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

Sean Cooke, CEO of the Men's Development Network and John Doyle, National Coordinator of the Men's Development Network's, MEND programme joined us this morning to tell us more.
