Fine Gael TD, Fergus O'Dowd, said that all the necessary resources must be given to gardaí in Nrogheda to tackle crime.
"The people of Drogheda are seriously concerned about the news that a pipe hose was bombed in a car transport pipeline in the town this weekend. The bomb was grateful and nobody was hurt, however, local people are aware of many events over the weeks and last months that are attributed to branch activity in Nrogheda and it is clear that we have to take quick steps to end this, "he said.
Mr O Dowd said he was in "ongoing communication" with the Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan in relation to the matter.
"It is vital that all the necessary resources are available to An Garda Síochána in the light of serious and personal criminal activity that has occurred over the last number of days, including the use of the # 39 ; cause great concern for potential viable bombs, the use of firearms and seek murders, "he added.
