Safety of North Inner City Residents is paramount - McDonald

19 April, 2016 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Following the recent spate of fatal shootings in Dublin’s North Inner City, Sinn Féin Dublin Central TD, Mary Lou McDonald has met with Assistant Garda Commissioner Jack Nolan and Chief Superintendent Pat Leahy.

Deputy McDonald said:

 “In the course of today's meeting, I sought assurances that all of the resources that Gardaí require are available and will be made available to them.   I am calling on the Minister for Justice to ensure that this is the case.

“Recent shootings in the North Inner City have brought a sense of fear and vulnerability to decent people.  Ensuring the safety and sense of safety of all the community is paramount.   The Gardaí understand this and will work with the community to ensure that people can go about their everyday business.

“It is imperative that people co-operate with the Gardaí to ensure that those who bring fear and violence onto our streets are brought to justice.”
