Shootings go on despite Armed Garda presence

A senior Limerick Garda has spoken this week of how the feuding gangs of Limerick are trying to kill each other in broad daylight and seem to completely ignore the presence of up to70 armed Gardaí.

From Garda horses to dogs and planes to helicopters,70 armed Gardai and the National Buraeu of investigation , Gardai just can’t seem to put a lid on all this violence.

Detective Sergeant Seamus Nolan spoke Wednesday about recent developments saying,

“Thirteen firearms and a large quantity of ammunition have been recovered since the murder of Frank Ryan”

He also spoke of how tensions in the area of Moyross have increased dramatically since the murder of Mr. Ryan last month. He claims that two groups have separated since the killing and are now shooting at each other in “planned and systematic” attacks.

The Limerick Leader reports tonight that a total of nine people have been arrested this week as part of Operation Anvils investigation into shootings in Moyross.
