One of the country's most senior gardaí has thanked a woman for her courage in helping to bring her violent and controlling ex-boyfriend to justice.

Daniel Kane, of Scariff House, Waterville Terrace, Blanchardstown, Dublin was jailed for ten and a half years today for coercive control and multiple assault charges.

Arising from his attempts to get her to withdraw her statement, he was also sentenced for charges of intimidation and perverting the course of justice.

After thanking the woman for her bravery, Chief Superintendent Finbarr Murphy also had this message for anyone who finds themselves in an abusive relationship:
