Shocking Navan attack must be investigated and perpetrators dealt with – Johnny Guirke TD

Sinn Féin TD for Meath West Johnny Guirke has described as ‘utterly shocking’ a video of a teenager being assaulted in Navan, Co. Meath that has appeared on social media.

The local TD said:

“The video circulating on social media of a teenager being attacked by a group of school going teenagers in Navan is utterly shocking. My thoughts at this time are with the child assaulted and their family.

“I would urge people to heed the advice of Gardaí not to further circulate this video and for anyone with any information about this incident to bring it to Gardaí so that this incident can be properly investigated and the perpetrators dealt with.

“There can be no room in our society for these types of acts and this behaviour.

“People in Navan and across the country will be rightly disgusted by this incident. It is not on and we must ensure this behaviour is rooted out once and for all.”

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.
