A local survivor of domestic abuse says there is an urgent need for a women’s refuge in Carlow.
Elizabeth and her four children managed to escape her abusive situation by driving to the refuge up in Rathmines in Dublin.
She’s joined the campaign for a refuge for Carlow women and a rally has been organised to take place in the town this weekend.
Speaking on KCLR’s The Way It Is on Wednesday, Elizabeth said there should be a facility in the county.
She says having to travel away from family and supports makes it very difficult.
