Shooting unacceptable and wrong- Cllr. Daithí Doolan
Responding to reports of a shooting in Cherry Orchard this evening, Sinn Féin Councillor Daithí Doolan said the shooting was wrong and unacceptable.
Cllr. Doolan said:
"This evenings shooting is an attack on the whole community. The shooting is wrong and it is unacceptable. It shows a blatant disregard for innocent passers by. I strongly condemn it. I urge anyone with information to come forward to Gardaí.
"Local Gardaí need to be fully resourced and supported to tackle the serious level of gun crime in this part of Dublin.
"I am appealing to the Minister for Justice to ensure Gardaí in Ballyfermot are given every resource possible to bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice. The public in Cherry Orchard deserve nothing less."
