A €10 million plan to bolster policing in Dublin city centre, after a number of violent attacks, has not been renewed.

It was announced last year in a bid to make the streets feel safer.

A number of violent incidents in central Dublin last summer, including attacks on tourists in Temple Bar and on Talbot Street, saw the Justice Minister come under pressure to take action.

A government plan worth €10 million was launched in August that saw increased deployment of the public order unit and close to 50,000 extra garda overtime hours a month.

It also funded days of action targeting known criminals and saw gardaí from other areas being brought in to strengthen frontline policing in the capital.

However the plan has since come to an end according to the Irish Times after the budget was spent and not renewed.
