Statement by the Tánaiste on Linaskea PSNI Station attack

Ireland, Northern Ireland Peace Process, Security, Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore, Press Releases, Northern Ireland, 2013


Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore has condemned tonight's (Monday, December 23) gun attack on Lisnaskea PSNI station as a “deplorable attack by terrorists”. He has extended solidarity to the PSNI officers and staff of the station who were targeted in such a cold-blooded manner.

The Tánaiste said:

"The PSNI is our partner in the fight against terrorism and the Gardaí will be making determined efforts to bring the perpetrators of this vile attack to justice, together with the PSNI. People in our communities know this is wrong and believe that an attack on one of us is an attack on all who support peace and the rule of law. Our best response is to support our police services and to make sure that democratic politics works for the good of all our communities."
