Sinn Féin deputy leader and Dublin Central TD Mary Lou McDonald has condemned the shooting which took place in Dublin’s North Inner City this morning which claimed the life of a man.

Deputy McDonald has called on anyone with any information in relation to this incident to bring it forward to the Gardaí.

Speaking today, the Dublin Central TD said;

“I condemn in the strongest terms the shooting that took place in the north inner city this morning.

“There is no excuse for the fear inflicted on the people of the inner city by criminals who believe they can flout the law and put the lives of innocents in jeopardy.

“I urge anyone with information to come forward to An Garda Síochána.

“I repeat my call on the government, on Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald, and the Garda Commissioner to bring forward a tailored plan for the North inner city. 

“A robust and resourced policing response and social and economic strategy is now urgent for these communities.”
