Clondalkin double murders: Extra Garda resources wanted
CLONDALKIN Sinn Féin Councillor Matthew McDonagh has renewed his call for a significant increase in Garda resources for the Garda Drugs Squad after the double murder of two brothers in Neilstown, Dublin West, this week.
They came on the same day that the Garda seized 14kg of cocaine along with two semi-automatic handguns in Terenure.
“We have gardaí fully trained to fight crime sitting behind desks and carrying out administrative duties,” the Sinn Féin councillor said.
“These gardaí need to be taken out from behind their desks and put directly into the fight against gangland crime and the drugs crisis on the streets and in our communities.”
