5 May, 2016 - by Maurice Quinlivan TD


Limerick City Sinn Féin TD Maurice Quinlivan has welcomed news today that a local criminal has been served with an exclusion order from the Kileely and Thomondgate areas.

Deputy Quinlivan said the last time this man was taken from the streets crime rates in the area dropped dramatically.

Speaking from Leinster House this afternoon Deputy Quinlivan said;

“This man is a notorious offender and is well known in the area.  His exclusion will be welcomed by the community and I certainly welcome this move.

“The last time this man was taken off the streets the crime rate for the area dropped dramatically.

“Exclusion orders have a positive impact on local communities that are suffering at the hands of small groups of criminals.  The courts don’t impose exclusion orders lightly and the fact that this young person has been excluded for three years shows the extent of the problems he caused in our area.

“These orders are proven to work and should be used in other areas.”
