Justice Committee Chairman appeals for public assistance with Kenny attack investigation

The Chairman of the Joint Oireachtas Committee on Justice and Equality Caoimhghín Ó Caoláin TD has issued an appeal to the general public to assist the Gardaí in their investigation of the arson attack on the family car of Sligo Leitrim TD and Sinn Féin Justice Spokesperson Martin Kenny TD when parked in the driveway of the Kenny home at Aughavas near Ballinamore in Co. Leitrim in the early hours of Bank Holiday Monday morning.

Deputy Ó Caoláin has described the attack as “a despicable act that deserves the outright rejection of all who believe in and value the democratic process in our land.”

Continuing he said; “Deputy Martin Kenny has been a fearless voice throughout his years of elected public service. He has given thoughtful and, when required, courageous leadership in his own county, in his constituency and nationally as a member of the Dáil, most recently in his spirited rejection of racism in all its ugly manifestations.

“I appeal to anyone and everyone who can assist the investigation of this cowardly crime to come forward and to co-operate with the Garda Síochána. Those responsible must be identified and brought to justice” stated Deputy Ó Caoláin.
