Gardaí vow to crack down on gang of youths carrying out assaults in north Dublin
At least two serious assaults were carried out by the one gang last week.
On Tuesday, a 16-year-old boy received serious head injuries during an assault at Seagrange Park, Baldoyle. He was taken to Beaumont Hospital where he is said to be in a serious condition.A day previously, an off-duty garda and his son were attacked by the same gang of youths.
Fianna Fáil TD Seán Haughey contacted senior gardaí in the district who assured him that policing resources were being allocated to help deal with this problem.In a reply to Haughey’s email, the Coolock Garda Station Superintendent said: “I have refocused the policing operation from high-density checkpoints to patrols of open amenity areas with a particular focus on youths and young adults. I have engaged Public Order Units in support of beat patrols and pedal cycle patrols.”
The Superintendent in Raheny Garda Station also said he had”deployed extra dedicated patrols to police public amenities to include Baldoyle, Sutton and Howth and our public parks”.#Open journalism No news is bad news Support The Journal Your contributions will help us continue to deliver the stories that are important to you
Support us nowHaughey called on people to support the gardaí and to provide them with information to help their policing response.He said: “Most young people have acted responsibility during this pandemic, but I’m sure everyone has seen teenagers and young people who are disregarding public health advice by meeting in large groups and ignoring social distancing. Ultimately, these young people and their parents must take responsibility for their actions.
Dont worry... arrests and deportations to follow. Did you ask the Howth Gardai for a statement, they cover that area when they are open. Why can’t we have some real reporting lads? Doesn’t fit the new modern wonderful ireland then Shoot to kill attitude Catch them, smash their knee caps, hobble the scumbags for life
diversity strikes I remember when communities asked the IRA to deal with anti social behaviour. There were 2 Gardai patrolling Sheriff St in 1982 and one of them told me, ' oh we're safe enough, they leave us alone'. True story... Yeah sure Start putting them in prison. That’s the only place they belong.
Description? Remember when the news used to give a description? For the safety of the public... Yeah, I remember. The OT needs to be reinstated LeoVaradkar gardainfo kids are being put at risk because of lack of policing along with scumbags being scumbags Bray too! What do you expect when the guards are now made up of fat women who can’t pass a basic fitness test. We’ve gone soft on law and order in this country and now we’re dealing with the consequences.
Pain is the only language these little bastards understand. Gardai backed up by the army need to round up these thugs and let them know what time it is. 2013 - 2018 - Sarah_Loughlin wonder who this was?Maybe the particular gang of particular individuals we seen out on Weds🤔 Africans?

Gardaí to crack down on speeding motoristsFigures from gardaí show that despite reduced volumes of traffic the levels of speed have increased Is it that there are more check points during the lockdown.? Good to hear. Plenty of drivers around where I live seem to think fewer cars on the road means they can drive at whatever speed they want They will yeah. Haven’t seen a Garda speed check in our area in 17 years.
Many Caherciveen direct provision staff not Gardaí vetted; Minister's statements - fact or fiction?More than half of the staff at the controversial direct provision centre in Caherciveen, Co Kerry, had not been Garda vetted by May 7, almost two months after the residents moved in, the Irish Examiner has learned. Mickcliff Were many of the residents Garda vetted? Mickcliff Surely the residents weren't either. Just saying.... Mickcliff Thank you Mick for providing people with the facts.

Covid-19: Gardaí warn new restrictions can't be enforcedSenior gardaí have warned Government officials that new Covid-19 restrictions are unenforceable. I’m puzzled as to how it’s difficult to work out the 5km from the Golf course one Gardai could ask clever questions like - Where do you live? or what’s your address?
