A LESBIAN couple in West Limerick are living in ‘hell’ following a campaign of homophobic abuse that has been directed at them, which saw them assaulted in front of a five-year-old child of one of the women involved.
The couple say during the attack they feared for their lives, due to the violent nature of the assault.
“They were all around us, attacking us. They pulled out lumps of our hair. We both knew that if we fell to the floor, we were dead.”
This is the second assault of the kind the couple has faced, with one of the women attacked on the street earlier this year. They feel as though they are being forced out of their home.
