Cavan and Monaghan are two of only a small number of counties that currently don't have a domestic violence refuge.

A Monaghan Domestic Violence service says the proposed new accommodation centre will be more than a refuge.

Earlier this month, Monaghan County Council confirmed that it's in the early stages of locating a suitable site.

Cavan and Monaghan are two of only a small number of counties to not have a domestic violence refuge, meaning victims currently need to travel to seek support.
