Calls have been made for further Gardai to be assigned to the North-West to protect border communities in Inishowen.
The Donegal peninsula has been plagued with recent criminal activity following a recent break-in and robbery at the newly opened Treehouse Restaurant in Muff.
Sinn Féin local election candidate for South Inishowen, Terry Crossan has reaffirmed the need for more Gardaí to protect Inishowen’s border communities from future criminality.
Mr Crossan said: “Unfortunately we know from CCTV evidence that this is another incident where criminals have crossed the border to carry out a break-in and robbery and then crossed back again.
“The Treehouse Restaurant is a good news story for Muff and Inishowen with serious capital investment by the owners.
“I and the local community are devastated that they have been victims of these criminals but we stand shoulder to shoulder with them,” he added.
“In every area with a large population like Derry City, sadly the likelihood of criminal gangs increases and homeowners and businesses in the border communities of Inishowen are vulnerable to these criminal gangs.”Tags:
