Arson incident at Stardust Memorial park


Pat Meehan joins local councillor LARRY O’TOOLE who speaks of outrage at an Arson attack at the Coolock memorial space for the Stardust Tragedy which took place in the local area in 1981.

They discuss other anti-social behaviour in the park surrounding the memorial and go on to discuss possible ways to dissuade this behaviour in the park including the use of cameras.

Larry speaks of the misfortune of Litter in the community and how unfortunate it is to see in certain areas. They carry on speaking about the possibility of an alert system in the area for anti-social behaviour and finish up by discussing if it is likely that it is a small number of repeat offenders causing this behaviour in the area.
