The Irish Mirror last year reported that Norah Casey spoke for the first time of her abusive first husband. The Former Irelands Dragons' Den star Norah Casey told her story of violence.
Speaking on the The Late Late Show by RTE about the years of abuse from her first husband. She revealed to Ryan Tubridy the host that she met her husband while working as London based Nurse when in her early 20s.
Quoting the businesswoman she admitted, "We were a very unlikely match." "One night [she and a friend] went to an upmarket wine bar and at the time we had no money. He came in splashing the cash, bought me a drink and asked me out."
Ms Casey said the "charming, fun" guy she met began to show his true colours on the third date when she mentioned her ex. The outburst set the precedent for the nine years they spent together.
After one drunken episode she claimed: "He pulled me into the house and battered me senseless... "When I was on the ground on the floor in the hall I could hardly see but I could see him going for a knife in the kitchen.
"I don't know how I did it but I pulled myself up and I barricaded myself into the sitting room." When she woke up about 4am her former partner was standing over her with the knife, crying and apologising, promising he would attend AA.
She said: "He wouldn't take me to the doctors for three days. I broke three ribs and my cheekbone was broken." Ms Carey left him six months after the incident and later found love with her second husband Richard Hannaford who passed away some years ago.
