A mum-of-six falsely imprisoned, kicked in the genitals and beaten unconscious by her ex in front of her screaming children has begged the DPP to appeal a two-year sentence handed down to the brute who attacked her.

Robert Maguire (35), from Lucan in Dublin, was given a two-year sentence for “ferociously” beating his ex-partner after he had found out she was in a new relationship.
