Statement by Ged Nash TD
Spokesperson on Finance, Public Expenditure and Reform

Reacting to the latest shooting in Drogheda, local Labour Senator Ged Nash said:

"This latest shooting in Drogheda has caused revulsion in my community.

"It took place on one of the busiest thoroughfare’s in Drogheda, across the road from one of the most popular convenience stores on the Northside of the town.

"I spoke to an eyewitness who told me the area was buzzing with children on their Easter holidays and locals going about their everyday business when several shots were discharged.

"My constant fear is that this ongoing criminal feud will take an innocent life.

"This madness needs to end. The under resourced local Gardai need to be adequately supported by government and those who are responsible for this cycle of violence must be brought to justice as a matter of extreme urgency."
