Ongoing gang feuds in Dublin will escalate to death, says councillor


It is only a matter of time before somebody is killed, after the most recent incident involving rival inner-city street gangs led to the stabbing of a young man in an altercation on the Samuel Beckett Bridge in Dublin last light. That’s according to one local city councillor, Janice Boylan, who said communities living on both sides of the Liffey, where a number of incidents have taken place in recent months, were living in fear. The Sinn Fein councillor for the North Inner City said groups of youths, both male and female, from both sides of the Liffey, had congregated on the bridge and engaged in a physical altercation that resulted in one young male suffering suspected stab wounds.
