I am ‘absolutely committed’ to keeping people safe, says McEntee




Helen McEntee says she is “absolutely committed” to keeping people safe in her role as justice minister, reports Breaking News.

Following Thursday’s riots in Dublin, Minister McEntee and Garda Commissioner Drew Harris will be invited to appear before the justice committee next week.

Both were called upon to resign from their posts following these incidents.

On Friday, Sinn Féin leader Mary Lou McDonald said Justice Minister Helen McEntee and Garda Commissioner Drew Harris should resign, reports Breaking News.

Speaking to reporters near the scene of the stabbing on Friday, McDonald said there was an “unacceptable failure to keep people safe” on Thursday night.

Ms McDonald said “mobs fueled by hate” had wreaked havoc in the town.

“The cold truth and the reality that we must confront today is that the Gardai lost control of the centre of our capital city. A mob was allowed to shut down the centre of the city. Public transport locked down. People stranded in the city. Members of the public, families and workers terrified in what was a threatening and volatile atmosphere,” reports Breaking News.
