Fianna Fáil Spokesperson on Justice, Jim O’Callaghan has said this morning’s shooting in Bray, Co. Wicklow which has claimed one life and seriously injured two others, is a worrying development and has urged anyone with information to furnish it to the Gardaí.

O’Callaghan said, “This was a crime of the most violent nature which took place in a coastal commuter town at a time when people were out walking and heading off to work or school.

“The Gardaí have done tremendous work in recent months in foiling numerous attempts to carry out shootings in the capital, but this morning’s early morning shootings are a worrying development.

The Minister for Justice has an obligation to ensure that An Garda Síochana are allocated the additional resources necessary to carry out their investigation and assure the local community of their safety.

“I urge anyone with information to bring it to the attention of the Gardaí immediately. I also wish those who were injured in this morning’s shooting a full and quick recovery,” he concluded.
