Recent shootings in north inner city Dublin

29th April, 2016

Yesterday both myself and Cllr. Ray McAdam, Chair of the Dublin Central Joint Policing Committee, met Chief Superintendent Pat Leahy in Store Street Garda Station to discuss recent shootings on the streets of the north-east inner city. At the meeting, we emphasised our full support for the actions taken to date by the Gardai in investigating these crimes but also in preventing further shootings. Furthermore, we reiterated to the Chief Superintendent that I and the Government will continue to provide whatever supports are necessary to apprehend those responsible for these terrible crimes.
