Gardaí in Donegal are reassuring victims of domestic abuse that current restrictions do not apply if they need to seek help.
Anyone who is a victim of domestic abuse or is in fear for their safety at any time should reach out for help.
“Please do not feel trapped in an abusive situation,” said a spokesperson.
“Please do not forgo medical attention for a sexual or physical trauma because of the restrictions that are in place. The travel restrictions do not apply should you need to get to a place of safety in a domestic violence situation.”
