BLOG FOR WEEK ENDING MAY 31ST

This week, our constituency was rocked by a two dastardly gun murders in broad daylight. I sought to adjourn order to stop the Dáil to immediately debate the serious need for urgent intervention from An Garda Síochána, Dublin City Council and the Government. Instead, I was granted a Topical Issue Debate and, on the floor of the Dáil, on Tuesday, myself and Minister of State in the Department of Justice and Equality, David Stanton, discussed the need for greatly enhanced community supports and additional resources for the Gardaí to combat this rise in gangland crime in the North of Dublin.
