It may be only a matter of time before an innocent bystander gets gunned down in an ongoing drugs feud, a senior garda has warned.

A turf war between rival gangs in Sligo has spiralled out of control after the release of a well-known convicted dealer from prison.

Last week armed cops responded when a number of shots were fired among a family in the middle of a day in a housing estate in the town.

Chief Supt Aidan Glacken has now made an urgent appeal to the local community to work with detectives in a bid to curb the rising tensions.

He said: “It could only be a matter of time before an innocent bystander falls foul and is caught in the crossfire. Innocent people die in deadly feuds. It is too late coming forward at that stage.

FF candidate 'ashamed' over college incident

FF candidate 'ashamed' over college incident A Fianna Fail candidate running for the European Parliament has said he is "ashamed" of "striking out at" a female friend while in college. Malcolm Byrne, who is running in the Ireland South constituency, was a 20-year-old student union leader at the time of the incident in 1994. Mr Byrne, who was then an education officer with the Union of Students in Ireland, issued a public apology after the incident at a freshers ball. In a newspaper report at the time, the then Ogra Fianna Fail member said he "felt great shame". Yesterday, Mr Byrne told the Sunday Independent the incident has been a "source of shame and regret for me ever since".

Both of those people were senior members of a criminal gang in Sligo , according to Supt Delaney. Supt Delaney said certain requests by a senior gang member were looking for information specific to a rival gang and there were also questions regarding future prosecutions being taken by gardaí in Sligo .

“We would encourage everyone to be vigilant, protect our democracy, we are all better acting before the fact rather than after the fact.

“We work off intelligence and we encourage people to come forward, let justice take over. We discourage people from taking the law into their own hands.”

The Garda chief admitted intimidation is rife, adding: “In Sligo we have seen evidence of people who owe money being physically harmed for owing drug debts. Everybody is entitled to the protection of the law and we would ask anyone who is being intimidated to come forward and we will deal with them in confidence.”

“Criminality and criminals will only exist with the aid of certain things, people who trade with them, those who facilitate them by harbouring, transporting or turning a blind eye.”

Sligo gangs have links to criminals across Ireland, Chief Supt Glacken believes who said the force will continue to step up its efforts to tackle drugs crime in the town.

“Within Sligo we do recognise there are a number of organised crime families active in the drugs trade with links to major criminal gangs in Ireland.

“We have a responsibility to tackle this. We have dedicated resources in our arsenal to develop intelligence on these individuals, building profiles.

“We ask what is the family tree, who are their agents, runners and suppliers? This leads to operations against lower level people.”
