Calls for greater Garda presence in The Town Square in Tralee

A trader in Tralee Town Square has called for a greater garda presence in the area during the daytime. Michael Mc Carthy says there have been problems in relation to school boys engaging in threatening and abusive behaviour at lunchtime. He says gangs of boys aged between 16 and 18 are causing havoc in the area. According to Mr Mc Carthy the Gardai have been notified and in recent days The Square has been quieter. However he says there needs to be a more consistent Garda presence on the streets to stamp it out completely.
