A Tipperary man claims that escalating levels of open drug dealing is “poisoning” Carrick-on-Suir.

Eddie Reade will hold a public meeting in St Nicholas Church in Carrick-on-Suir this Thursday (October 11) at 7pm. “This meeting is being held for a variety of reasons, but primarily to focus on coming together as a community and trying to do something about the escalating levels of open dealing taking place in our communities,” Eddie says.

“It has come to a sorry state of affairs when drugs are openly being dealt and indeed used openly in public places in the town. The stories that I have been told would amaze some but sadly are fairly common place,” Eddie claims.

"The dealers have no fear of one or two people trying to stand up to them - they believe our community is too afraid to stand up to them. It’s time to prove them wrong! It’s gone beyond ‘leave them at it’ or ‘it’s none of our business’. Our town is being poisoned with filth, our youth are being destroyed. These dealers are too clever to take it themselves or get caught taking it, and are making easy money.

"Join us on Thursday in St Nicholas Church and help us try clean up this scourge in our town for once,” he adds.
