A local representative has condemned the scenes in Salthill whereby a large number of youths obstructed Gardaí yesterday evening.
Fine Gael Councillor Eddie Hoare says he is disappointed that Garda resources were ‘wasted’ tackling incidents like this in the city.
The Galway City Cllr has been liaising with Gardaí following the public order incident calling for more checkpoints into the city for the remainder of the bank holiday weekend.
He absolutely refutes social media footage of the incident which purports to make links with scenes in the US over the week.
Cllr Hoare has been telling Midwest News that it’s worrying to see incidents like this during the pandemic.
