In Ireland last year, more than 140 groups – including the West Limerick Primary Health Care Project for Travellers – took part in the National Balloon Action or organised other events as a show of support.According to Women’s Aid, one in five women in Ireland experience domestic abuse during their lifetime, and it is estimated that 213,000 women in Ireland are living with severe abuse from their boyfriends, husbands and partners.Community Health worker, Nora Harty said, “Domestic abuse affects all walks of life, women from different communities, cultures and ethnic groups. It is important that we all play our part in raising awareness about domestic abuse which is the use of physical or emotional force or the threat of physical force, including sexual violence in close adult relationships.” Facebook NewsLocal NewsWest Limerick women support 16 Days campaignBy Alan Jacques – December 11, 2014 676 Advertisement Print Vanishing Ireland podcast documenting interviews with people over 70’s, looking for volunteers to share their stories TAGS16 days of Action Against Violence Against WomenlimerickNewcastle WestWest LimerickWest Limerick Primary Health Care Project for Travellers center_img Email Previous articleBusy night for emergency servicesNext article125 new jobs on the way Alan Jacqueshttp://www.limerickpost.ie RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Predictions on the future of learning discussed at Limerick Lifelong Learning Festival Twitter WhatsApp Limerick Ladies National Football League opener to be streamed livelast_img read more
