Statement of Archbishop Dermot Farrell on shooting of Gardaí in Dublin

26 May 2021

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.
