What the locals say on crime...

Caroline Pollard (40), who works at The Square in Tallaght and lives in neighbouring Clondalkin.

"I've never felt uneasy or unsafe. I always feel there is someone around. There is never gangs. I never feel intimidated."

Jessica Murray (18), a Tallaght resident and mother-of-one.

"I don't feel it's a great place to raise kids."

John McDonnell (66) and wife Philomena have lived in Tallaght for 30 years.

"We've never been robbed or burgled nor have any of my friends either. We're

certainly not afraid to walk around at night."
