This week, locals in Drogheda in County Louth took to the streets, calling for an end to violence in their town. A feud involving two rival drug gangs has seen an escalation of tensions over the past few months.

The Garda Chief Superintendent in Louth has said the two criminal gangs involved in recent feuding in Drogheda once worked together but have now “imploded”.

Earlier in the week, it was confirmed that 25 additional gardaí would be allocated to the town, in addition to the armed Emergency Response Unit already being deployed there.

To discuss what else is being done to get the situation under control in Drogheda, Susan was joined on the line by Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan.
