REPUBLICAN Sinn Fein said it will continue to highlight the illegal drugs problem in Kildare.
Following a public demonstration in Celbridge town on Saturday, Janaury 11, the party's Frank Driver cumann said members from Kildare and Raheny in Dublin took part, along with 10 local Celbridge residents.
Chairman, Damien Dillon said a group of around 20 participants ignored strong winds and pouring rain to put our message across to the people of Celbridge, and indeed Kildare, that "filthy heroin dealers are selling this dangerous and addictive drug to our kids", while increasing the crime rate in our communities.
Mr. Dillon said drug dealings of all kinds is a serious problem in Kildare and all over Ireland, on our streets and behind closed doors." We, Republican Sinn Fein, will continue to highlight this problem all over Kildare."
Mr Dillon said it got a great response from passing motorists, beeping, giving their support.
He said the protest lasted about 60 minutes and the party thanked all who attended and everyone for their support on this issue.
The party's next protest is taking place at Rosconnell Estate entrance in Newbridge on February 7 at 3pm sharp.
