Give a priceless gift

Sir -- People are considering what to give their friends and family for Christmas. I can think of a present that might help make Ireland a better, safer, less violent country in which to live, a gift that costs nothing to give but could make a huge difference to our quality of life.
I suggest that anyone who has the smallest nugget of information about drug dealers who continue to ravage communities nationwide pick up a phone and dial the Garda confidential number. Hold nothing back!
The recession is bad enough, with families battling to get through each day and hoping for better times ahead. But gangland thugs peddling drugs make a bad economic situation a darn sight worse for many people. Countless lives have been devastated by addiction, and the drugs business also fuels gangland killings and widespread intimidation of innocent people.
