A top local Garda has expressed his frustration at people from the North of Ireland committing public order offences in Castleblayney.

Speaking at a recent hearing of Carrickmacross District Court, Inspector Kevin Gavigan remarked that Gardaí were concerned at the extent of public order incidents in Castleblayney on weekends involving people from Northern Ireland.

Inspector Gavigan said Gardaí were “sick of it” adding these types of incidents were “happening week in and week out in the town”.

The comments came during the hearing of a court case involving two people from Northern Ireland who were arrested after an incident in the centre of Castleblayney.

Inspector Gavigan told Judge John Lindsay that the Gardaí were sick of dealing with such incidents, and that people from the North were using Castleblayney as a place to “ go wild” in.
