“Urgent action” needed to tackle youths gathering and flouting public health…

first_imgLimerickNews“Urgent action” needed to tackle youths gathering and flouting public health guidelines at scenic Limerick walkwayBy David Raleigh – February 25, 2021 1197 Limerick’s National Camogie League double header to be streamed live Previous articleMunster defence “coming together nicely” ahead of Cardiff clashNext articleLISTEN: Cian Lynch speaks about maintaining skill level during the lockdown David Raleigh WhatsApp Facebook A Limerick politician has called for “urgent action” to address groups of youths gathering at a scenic Limerick walkway and flouting public health guidelines and intimidating members of the public.Independent Councillor Frankie Daly said groups of youths have been converging at Canal Bank, Limerick, without wearing face masks and causing a disturbance.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up “People do not feel safe on the Canal Bank, they feel uneasy even just going for a walk, it’s sad to say, but that’s the truth of it,” said Cllr Daly.He has been contacted by local residents complaining after youths have been gathering for the past number of weeks beneath a flyover bridge on the bank, intimidating people.Cllr Daly said a glass bottle was thrown at a female as she cycled along the bank last week and that two females, who were walking along the bank were assaulted and robbed.“It’s not the gardai’s fault, it’s a resources issue, I know a lot of gardai are out doing Covid-19 checkpoints, but urgent action is needed,” Cllr Daly said.A video recorded two weeks ago shows a large group of youths at Canal Bank gathered together not wearing masks and generally causing a disturbance to local residents.“This is causing fear for walkers and joggers an cyclists. 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.

first_img Read Full Story A group of students at Harvard Divinity School has organized an interfaith service for World  AIDS Day titled “Beloved Community, Beloved Work, Moving Forward in Life.” The service will be hosted by the Natural Dharma Center at 5 Longfellow Park in Cambridge, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., on Tuesday, December 1.Rod Owens, a teacher of Tibetan Buddhism at the Natural Dharma Center and an M.Div. candidate at HDS, will lead a sitting meditation from 6:30 to 7 p.m. The formal service will begin at 7:15 p.m. and include music, guided chanting, and reflections from people in the Boston area who are living with HIV.“I have been active in HIV/AIDS prevention and education since college,” Owens said. “World AIDS Day is a reminder for me that we still have AIDS, and the communities I identify with are the most impacted by it. I have to do what I can to be an agent of healing for my community. Part of that healing means helping to organize spaces where we can express our struggle, pain, and loss as well as our joy and celebrations.”The program’s title, “Beloved Community, Beloved Work, Moving Forward in Life,” was chosen to emphasize the student organizers’ belief that healing spiritually from the trauma of HIV/AIDS is valuable, communal work. It is also a reminder that this work is not only about death, but about life.last_img read more
