Raw grief: The funeral of Concepta Leonard in May 2017

The brother of a Co Fermanagh woman murdered five years ago by her ex-partner has said that people who claim not all men are capable of abuse are diluting a message about domestic violence that needs to be heard.

Fergal Leonard, brother of 51-year-old businesswoman Concepta, who was murdered in her Maguiresbridge home in 2017, said more action was needed to tackle violence against women, and that men were key in promoting that message.
