RTÉ and the newspapers go into overdrive to give us all regular updates, including biographies, on the drug dealers operating in Dublin. Do we really need all this information? Does no editor think that rather than glamorising these people, there should be very limited information on their lifestyles, who they are related to and how they live above the law? Taxpayers are more interested in having the resources of the law directed at managing a fair and safe society.

The house in Lismore Road, Crumlin where a 16-year-old boy was shot last night.

Labour party councillor Michael O’Sullivan said gangland shootings in west Dublin were becoming so commonplace that people were not even reacting to them any more.

“It’s just been reported today that a 14-year-old girl in Pakistan has been shot by the Taliban, and we have worldwide condemnation. We should be acting to the same degree of horror,” he said.
