Pandemic Blamed In Part For Increase In Divorce Applications

There was a 29 per cent increase in applications for divorce last year.

Nearly 5,300 were lodged with the courts, compared to less than 4,100 the previous year.
There was only a 5 per cent increase in 2019.
Consultant psychiatrist Patricia Casey, from the Hermitage Medical Clinic in Dublin, believes last year's rise was partly pandemic-related.
