Pa Daly TD condemns Grafton Street stabbing

Sinn Féin spokesperson on Justice, Pa Daly TD, has called for action from the government on foot of a stabbing on Grafton Street in the early hours of Sunday morning. 
Teachta Daly said:

“I am appalled by the details of this latest attack, which is one of a series that have occurred over the summer months.
“It is becoming increasingly clear how inappropriate the remarks of government Ministers were, as they refused to accept there was an issue with Garda morale and with attacks in the city centre. 
“A greater sense of urgency and imagination needs to be shown. Senior Garda sources who I spoke to rightly pointed to the importance of updating the garda reserve regulations so recruitment of reservists could resume.
“Non-core duties, as detailed in the Future of Policing report, should be given to other agencies. Retention and recruitment should both be improved also.
“These attacks are becoming worryingly frequent and will impact on the economic and social life of those who live and work in the city. Fine Gael’s legacy on justice is becoming increasingly clear and they must face up to the reality of the situation.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
