24 hour surveillance needed after Clogherhead feud murder – Imelda Munster TD

28 August, 2019 - by Imelda Munster TD


Sinn Féin Louth TD Imelda Munster has reiterated her call for Gardaí to put the main suspects in the Drogheda feud under 24 hour surveillance.

The comments come after the murder of a man in Clogherhead yesterday afternoon.

Deputy Munster said;

"The people of the seaside village were 'deeply shocked' by yesterday’s events. I have spoken to my party colleague and Louth councillor, Cllr. Tom Cunningham, who lives in the area.

“This latest reckless attack could have caused multiple casualties, such was the brazen nature of this.

“The caravan park is popular place for families who, for decades, have spent their entire summers there.

“This shooting took place in a peaceful seaside village setting and it is clear these thugs don’t care who they put at risk.

“What has happened has sent shockwaves through the close-knit community in the village. It is natural that people are anxious that those responsible are arrested and brought before the courts.

“People in Drogheda are of the belief this feud is nowhere near over and won’t be until the instigators are arrested and charged. Frustration has set in with the local community and feel these culprits appear to act without fear of being caught.

“I have repeatedly called for round the clock surveillance and I reiterate this call again. It appears that is the only way to monitor their every move, curtail their drug dealing and to prevent further attacks and shootings."
