The meeting at the Carraig Hotel on Monday, November 18 was attended by an estimated 150 people and was a follow up to the public meeting held at the town’s Nano Nagle Community Resource Centre in early October, which heard shocking reports from town centre residents of cats, kittens and dogs being stolen, tortured and killed by hurley wielding youths and other alleged anti-social behaviour and crimes.

The Crime Awareness Committee was formed at that meeting and comprises representaives of residential areas throughout the town as well as a member of An Garda Siochana. The Committee is working with the Gardai to tackle the problems highlighted at the public meetings.
