Community ‘absolutely fuming’ in Tallaght this evening - Seán Crowe TD
Sinn Féin Dublin South West TD Seán Crowe has called for a speedy and effective response from the Gardaí to the scenes in Tallaght this evening which has seen local businesses looted and burned.
Teachta Crowe also said those responsible for these criminal acts are not representative of the vast majority of good people in Tallaght.
Speaking this evening he said;
“While the vast majority people in Tallaght are worried about weather conditions, getting to work, supporting their neighbours and helping the elderly, criminal elements have brought shame by looting and destroying local businesses.
“The last few days have been full of positive stories of people pulling together but the criminality witnessed tonight in Tallaght is generating huge anger and frustration.
“There must be a speedy and effective policing response from An Garda Síochána. It is also important to note that these criminal acts are not representative of the vast majority of good people in Tallaght. In fact, the people of this area are absolutely fuming at this evening’s events.
“My sympathies and my thoughts are with those who will undoubtedly lose their jobs and their livelihoods as a result of this madness.”
