Killers have shown callous disregard for human life

05 February 2016

I’ve spoken with my colleague, Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald, about this afternoon’s horrific events in the Regency Hotel.

My first thoughts are with the family of the victim, and with those injured and caught up in the attack, including hotel staff.

This was a barbaric act, and the fact that children were also put in harm’s way shows what callous disregard the perpetrators have for human life.

While the full details are still emerging, I know the Garda Siochana will do everything in their power to bring the perpetrators to justice.
