Local Fianna Fáil Councillor Trevor Gilligan has condemned the shooting dead of a man at Greenogue Industrial Estate in Rathcoole this morning.
Cllr. Gilligan commented, “This attack in broad daylight is yet another terrible example of just how brazen criminal thugs have become and just how vulnerable our local communities feel at this time.
“What more evidence does the Government need to realise that this is not the time to dismantle community policing, cutback on garda resources and completely undermine our local gardaí? People are genuinely fearful about the alarming increase in dissident activity, gang crime, violent crime and burglaries in Dublin and commuter areas. Gardaí are under more pressure than ever before, and they need to be supported in keeping our streets safe.
“I want to commend the local gardaí for their swift response to this awful incident this morning. It must be condemned in the strongest terms and gardaí must be given every support possible to ensure that these criminals are brought to justice.”
“I would also encourage anyone with information on this morning’s shooting to contact gardaí in Clondalkin on 01-6667600.”
