New law sees prosecutions in Donegal for paying for sex

 

23 people faced prosecution for paying for sex last year.

The DPP directed that 15 people in Dublin go to court for the offence, with the others being in Donegal, Cork, Kerry and Waterford.

According to freedom of information files, 59 people have faced prosecution since the law was introduced in 2017.

Kate McGrew, from the Sex Workers Alliance, says the legislation forces people on to the 'black market'.
