Poll: Should Garda overtime be restored in response to the latest gangland killing?

The scaling back of such overtime has coincided with an escalation in gang warfare in Dublin.

YESTERDAY’S SHOOTING OF an innocent bystander in Dublin’s inner city marks the fifth killing since last September in the ongoing Kinahan-Hutch feud that has shaken the capital’s gangland to its core.

In the aftermath of the killing of David Byrne at Dublin’s Regency Hotel in February, Garda armed response units were to be seen patrolling the streets of the city.

Those units have now been removed, reportedly as a result of an extra-overtime budget being exhausted.

But in the light of the latest killing, do you think armed gardaí should be restored to the streets of Dublin?

We’re asking: Should Garda overtime be restored in response to the latest gangland killing?
