Calls For More Gardai On The Beat To Tackle Fireworks In Dublin


Having more Gardaí out on patrol and tackling those selling illegal fireworks needs to become a priority.

That’s according to south Dublin councillor, Carly Bailey. It follows reports that a woman was injured after a firework was thrown at her in Rathfarnham.

While in Palmerstown, local reps say a number of bangers have been put through people’s letter boxes.

Usually an issue in the run up to Halloween, illegal fireworks have been causing serious distress for communities around Dublin as early as August.

Dublin Live reports that an address in the Wheatfield area had a banger shoved through its letterbox. The outlet also reported that a couple wheeling around their newborn child had a banger hurled at them earlier that evening.
