Condemning the murder of a man in Bettystown last night, Sinn Féin TD for Louth Gerry Adams said:
“This was a disgraceful action. It is the latest violence in a drugs war between criminal gangs that has shocked and outraged citizens in Louth.
“I would ask anyone with information to bring that forward to An Garda Síochána.
“I would also urge the Minister for Justice to review Garda resourcing within Louth to ensure that An Garda Síochána has the resources needed to tackle the drug gangs.”
