Labour Senator Aodhan O'Riordan has hit out at Taoiseach Leo Varadkar. He says he doesn't understand the level of hurt in the Dublin 17 area after 3 murders.
Leo Varadkar was criticised after he said he was going to visit north Dublin "as soon as he can find a little bit of time."
There's calls to do more in the area in the wake of 3 gangland murders in the space of a week.
Labour Senator Aodhan O'Riordan said: 'If 3 murders happened in a different part of the city there would be a more immediate response.
'I don't think he understands the level of hurt that these things cause and I don't think he understands the impact it has on school children.
'I don't think he understands the level of impact it has on a community.
'I would have welcomed if he had said immediately that he was going to seek out community group, talk to the Gardai.
'I want a Mulvey report.
'Flippant comments like that just make people believe that he just doesn't genuinely care as much as he should.'
