Deputy Smith says there is no going back to what this country went through in the past

Society cannot tolerate terrorism in any shape or form and we need to get rid of such activities.

That's the view of local Fianna Fáil TD Brendan Smith. Deputy Brendan Smith's comments come following the shooting of an off duty police officer in Omagh, in what he describes as 'despicable' and deployable.

The Cavan-Monaghan TD made the comments after the attempted murder of Detective Chief Inspector John Caldwell last Wednesday. Police have blamed dissident republican group the new IRA for the attack. Speaking in the Dáil in recent days Mr Smith said: "The despicable shooting in Omagh reminds us starkly of that awful era in our country when so many innocent people lost their lives and so many were seriously injured. Deputy Smith says there is no going back to what this country went through in the past.
