I was shocked to hear of the shooting and injury of two Gardaí in west-Dublin yesterday. I thank God that there was no loss of life. We are indebted to all members of An Garda Síochána who provide a vital and professional service as guardians of the peace. At this time I will remember the injured Gardaí, and their families, in my prayers.
