There were two young females attacked the other night, it reminds me of the movie Fallen Down when Michael Douglas’ character is sitting by a rock and he’s ordered to pay a toll by two other men who approach him,” Cllr Daly said.“People are afraid to walk freely, there needs to be more garda visibility on the canal bank.”“These are large groups of young teenagers aged from around 14 years upwards, and they are breaking every public health rule under the sun.““It’s a huge problem when the message isn’t getting through, and we could be under lockdown for longer.”Gardai said they are to increase patrols along the walkway in response to the concerns.“Community Policing Units in Henry Street Garda Station and Mayorstone Garda Station will be increasing the number of patrols of the Canal Bank in Limerick City to prevent and detect incidents of anti-social behaviour, ensure compliance to Covid-19 Regulations and to keep the community safe,” a Garda spokesman said.
