Crisis on our street

THE DRINK-fuelled violence stalking our streets has been highlighted by the murder of journalist Eugene Moloney.

Two young men from respectable families -- who did not know each other -- have now been implicated in the assault.

Today one of the men, a 21-year-old, admitted to gardai: "I did it." The killing is an example of the drink-fuelled assaults occurring every weekend in our city.

The suspect, from Templeogue in south Dublin, is likely to face manslaughter charges later. Another man -- aged in his early 20s and from Rathfarnham -- was released last night and a file will be sent to the DPP.
