Tanaiste condemns latest gangland killing

08 February 2016

I want to condemn in the strongest possible terms tonight’s latest gangland murder in Dublin’s north inner city.

This incident is clearly linked to last Friday’s killing, and our priority must be to ensure that this feud does not escalate.

We will give An Garda Siochana all the necessary support to find those responsible. Communities must be protected from these brutal criminals who have no interest in the rule of law, only their own selfish interests.

We need to have adequate procedures in place to deal with gangland criminals, including the Special Criminal Court.

Following tonight’s murder I have spoken at length to the minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald, and I and my Cabinet colleagues will continue to monitor the situation extremely closely over the coming days.
