Certain sectors of our community are feeling the effects of social isolation lack of interaction on a daily basis with their family friends, neighbours and the general community.

An Garda Síochána in compliance with the current mission statement ‘keeping people safe’ would like to reiterate and assure communities of ongoing commitment.
