Mary Lou McDonald TD welcomes seizure of explosives in city centre

5 June, 2017 - by Mary Lou McDonald TD


Sinn Féin Dublin Central TD Mary Lou McDonald, speaking after Gardaí seized explosives and detonators in her constituency over the weekend, has commended the Gardaí for their quick actions to keep the community safe.

Teachta McDonald said;

“This is a community that has been through so much, not just over the past couple of years, but for generations.

"I am pleased that the Gardaí acted fast and removed these explosives from the community.  They are to be commended for their actions but they must also be resourced properly to do their jobs.

“Those criminal elements operating in this community and further afield are a plague on our society and we must do everything in our power to put them away and keep our communities safe.

“That is not only the responsibility of the Gardaí.  It requires politicians who are prepared to back up our Gardaí with resources and policies to enable them to do their jobs.”
