The Archbishop of Dublin Dermot Farrell has expressed his shock at the shooting of two gardaí in Dublin yesterday. The gardaí, understood to be plain clothes detectives, suffered non-life threatening gunshot wounds.

In a statement issued this morning, Archbishop Farrell said, “I was shocked to hear of the shooting and injury of two Gardaí in west-Dublin yesterday.  I thank God that there was no loss of life.  We are indebted to all members of An Garda Síochána who provide a vital and professional service as guardians of the peace.”

Archbishop Farrell has offered prayers for the injured gardaí, and for their families.
