Senator Catherine Ardagh calls on the Minister for Health to attend the Seanad to explain how the primary care centre for Drimnagh fell away from "the funded plan"
Latest shooting raises concerns about increase in violent crime in Dublin – Ardagh
- Locals worried for their safety -
Fianna Fáil Senator Catherine Ardagh has condemned the latest shooting in Dublin and has called on anyone who knows anything about last night’s incident to contact the Gardaí.
She made the appeal following a shooting outside the National Stadium on the South Circular road in which two men were injured.
“This latest incident has increased fear levels among locals. The rise in shootings and violent crime across the city is extremely worrying and people living in these areas, particularly older people, are concerned for their safety. The fact that innocent by-standers are being injured in these senseless attacks adds a worrying new dimension to this feud”, said Senator Ardagh.
“What happened last night must be condemned in the strongest possible terms. There was an event on in the National Stadium last night and this incident caused widespread panic in the area. The public nature of this callous attack could have seen more people injured.
“The perpetrators of this vicious and violent crime must be brought to justice and I am appealing to anyone who was in the area last night and saw anything that could help the investigation to come forward and talk to the Gardaí”.
