TAOISEACH Enda Kenny has held a meeting with Garda and army chiefs about the ongoing security and terrorist threats across Europe.
Mr Kenny and minister of State for Defence Paul Kehoe met Garda Commissioner Noirin O’Sullivan and the Chief of Staff of the Defence forces in Government Buildings.
The Taoiseach was told that the threat assessment to Ireland remains “moderate” ie.. a terrorist attack is considered possible but not likely.
The meeting took place on a back of series of terrorist attacks in France and Germany.
“The ongoing cooperation between the security forces here and with their international counterparts was noted,” a Government spokesperson said.
