Gardaí in Cork arrested a man, aged in his 50s, as a result of an ongoing investigation into an incident of coercive control under Section 39(1) of the Domestic Violence Act, 2018.

He has since been charged and is due to appear before a special sitting of Bandon District Court today, Saturday June 20th, at 3pm.
