A LETTERKENNY councillor has said the stabbing incident in Letterkenny in which a Garda sergeant and three bouncers were stabbed cannot be allowed to overshadow a successful weekend festival in the town.
Cllr Jimmy Kavanagh insisted: “It’s important to note that this incident happened well after the Letterkenny Live gig had finished.
“It is important that a negative message about Letterkenny Live does not take root because of one incident which happened after the event had finished, and there was a huge good humoured crowd at the gig itself.
“The Gardai were excellent all weekend and policed the event efficiently and with common sense.
“I hope that the Garda and the night club security staff injured in this incident fully recover from their injuries soon. I hope also that the perpetrator of this craziness is brought to justice and that a clear message is sent out to prevent further incidences of this nature and make it clear that carrying knifes in social settings is completely unacceptable.”Tags:
