The people of Dublin Bay North deserve to feel safe – Denise Mitchell TD

Sinn Féin TD for Dublin Bay North Denise Mitchell has called on the Government to honour their commitments and increase Garda resources in Dublin Bay North in the wake of another fatal shooting in the area.

The Sinn Féin spokesperson for Dublin said:

“Last May, Government representatives were all too happy to stand in the constituency and talk about the increased Garda resources that they were going to divert to the area.

“Here we are six months later in the aftermath of yet another shooting in the area and the local Gardaí are just as overstretched as they were. We need to see extra resources deployed to the Coolock area.

“The people I represent deserve to feel safe and not in expectation of another gun attack. The Government must honour their commitments and increase Garda presence in the area. We need more Gardaí on our streets.

“I am calling on the Minister for Justice to establish a special taskforce as we saw in the North Inner City to provide the multi-agency response needed to stem this feud on our streets.”
