Maurice Quinlivan TD welcomes extension of Operation Thor to Northside
Limerick City TD Maurice Quinlivan has welcomed the news that An Garda Síochána have decided to extend Operation Thor to the Northside of the city until the end of October.
Speaking from Limerick, Deputy Quinlivan said;
“I am happy to hear that Operation Thor is to be extended to the Northside of the city, as this will assist with the ongoing efforts to stamp out crime and anti-social behaviour, particularly in the Old Cratloe Road area.
“In addition to the recently installed CCTV cameras, I hope the extension of this Garda operation will result in a reduction in crime and intimidation in the area.
“The residents in this locality have had to deal with criminality, attacks, anti-social behaviour, and intimidation at the hands of individuals who have no respect for the law.
“The State has a duty to ensure that the rights of decent people to live peacefully in their communities, walk the streets and bring up their families, without fear or intimidation are upheld. This issue has gone on for way too long and allowed to fester and worsen.
"Sinn Féin will continue to push for more co-ordinated action through the Council, social services and the Gardaí to totally stamp out this problem."
