An tOrd Gnó - Order of Business
The gardaí who are in Drogheda at the moment require the kind of support that I think every member of An Garda Síochána in this country is entitled to expect. If I can, a Chathaoirligh, I will conclude on this point. This is an urgent matter. I understand that the Taoiseach is scheduled to visit Drogheda on Friday. My message to him is that he should not come to Drogheda if he does not have additional Garda resources to provide to the senior Garda management in the town. Otherwise, it can only be dismissed as a mere PR stunt, the same type of PR stunt that was undertaken by the Minister for Justice and Equality last December.
