The news this morning that Gardai made a €80,000 heroin seizure in the Hill Street Flat complex is to be greatly welcomed.
A number of residents in Hill Street had complained to me about the level of drug dealing in the complex and I'm delighted that the Gardai have had this success.
The Gardai worked on this operation for months as a result of numerous complaints from Hill Street Residents. This seizure now means that there have been two heroin busts in the last week. It is a worrying development that heroin seems to be making a sinister comeback.
The Gardai must be congratulated as it is their fantastic work that has ensured that €80,000 worth of this lethal substance is now off the streets.
