Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Doolan expresses sympathy for family of man found in Cherry Orchard

21 July, 2015 - by Daithí Doolan


Responding to reports that a young man's body was found in Cherry Orchard, local Sinn Féin Councillor Daithí Doolan said:

“It is very sad news that another body has been found in Cherry Orchard. This is the second body found in this area in the last six months. It is a tragedy for this young man’s family. I would encourage the public to fully cooperate with the Gardaí. Anyone with information, no matter how small or insignificant it appears, should contact the Gardaí.

“I would also appeal to the Garda Commissioner to allocate more Gardaí to Ballyfermot. I have written to the Superintendent and to the Chief Superintendent seeking a meeting at senior level to discuss extra resources for Ballyfermot. Too often, the public are told there are not enough Gardaí to respond to incidents in Cherry Orchard.

“I hope this investigation is brought to a swift and successful conclusion. My sympathies are with this young man's family.”
