In 2015, an amazing, young, bright, lovable individual, Lorcan O'Reilly, was stabbed to death not too far from here in Dublin's inner city. Many steps need to be taken to tackle the rise in knife crime throughout the city and that needs to start with dialogue with the families most affected by this brutal crime. The Minister for Justice has committed to engaging with Lorcan's mother Jenny. I ask the Tánaiste to ensure the Minister for Justice keeps this commitment and engages with Lorcan's family, and puts in place any resources needed to tackle knife crime.
