Cllr. Paul McAuliffe, the local Fianna Fáil public representative for Ballymun, has said that the latest shooting has left the entire Ballymun community feeling threatened and saddened.

“People have been left in complete shock by the shamelessness of this late night shooting,” he said.

“Make no mistake – this was an attack that put the safety of the Ballymun community, its residents, local students and local construction workers at grave risk.

“We have heard of far too many incidents where innocent bystanders have been caught in the crossfire of such brutal attacks.

“I hope that An Garda Síochána will be in a position to arrest those responsible as soon as possible, and I would urge all those with information to get in touch to help them bring those responsible to justice,” concluded McAuliffe.
