Use of children's schoolyard by drug dealers represents new low for parasites

9 November, 2005

Dún Laoghaire Sinn Féin representative Michael Nolan has welcomed the news today that the Gardaí have seized a quantity of cocaine with a street value of €200,000 from a Dun Laoghaire schoolyard.  Mr. Nolan condemned the use of a schoolyard for such purposes. 

Speaking today he said, “Drug dealers are well known for their disregard for the safety of the communities in which the ply their evil trade, but the use of a children’s schoolyard represents a new low for these parasites. 

“The removal of these drugs from the streets of Dún Laoghaire is a welcome development given the chronic rise in the use of cocaine across Ireland.  I’d like to congratulate the Gardaí on a job well done.  This sort of abuse of children’s facilities must not be tolerated.” ENDS
