‘The end product is they all die young’ – Finglas priest warns over feuds

RTÉ reports:

ACP contributor Séamus Ahearne speaks to RTÉ Prime Time

Young men may be attracted into the murky world of drug dealing because of “easy money” and “bling” but they all die young, a priest working in Finglas has warned.

Fr Seamus Ahearne said he has seen “too many murders” in the 25 years he has been a priest in the north Dublin suburb.

He has seen too many people die when they get caught up in drugs, and too many mothers lose their young sons in gang violence.
