Reviews are to be carried out into future cases where women are killed by their partners to look at whether "red flags" were missed.

The Irish Times reports it's part of a new government plan to be published next month aimed at tackling gender-based violence.

Another part of the strategy will see the curriculum updated and primary and secondary school students taught about consent, domestic violence and coercive control.

The plan will also outline a commitment to extra lighting in public areas and the introduction of "safe spaces" where people can wait for public transport.

Sarah Benson, CEO of Women's Aid, says measures to prevent gender-based violence will be important;

"Work from the cradle to the grave, which starts with parents at home and then moves into schools around teaching, not just about consent, but about respect, about difference, about mutuality and all of that is laying the groundwork for future generations."
