Senator Tony Mulcahy will launch Safe Ireland’s Man Up Campaign on behalf of the Clare Local Area Network on Violence against Women in the De Valera Public Library, Ennis at 6pm on Tuesday 25th November. Men in particular are being asked to attend the launch to show their support to women and children who experience domestic abuse and to the services that support them directly. Women of course are very welcome and encouraged to attend also! The Man Up Campaign was launched nationally on 22nd October by Lyn Rosenthal (White House Advisor on Violence against Women) and Ryan Tubridy. The Taoiseach and the Minister for Justice have both given their support to this campaign. The campaign aims to raise awareness that domestic and sexual abuse is not just a women’s issue but one that both women and men need to address. More information is available at The exhibition will be on display and available for viewing during opening hours in the De Valera Public Library from the 24th-28th November 2014.
