Dublin City Council Says It Did Not Pay Protection Money To Stop Attacks On Building Workers.

: 10/09/2019 - 17:19

Dublin City Council says it didn't pay protection money to gangs to stop attacks on workers at its building sites.

The High Court has heard claims that three construction firms working for the local authority handed over up to €1500 a week to stop harassment.

Dublin City Council and the Housing Minister have both said they don't condone the paying of protection money by any contractor.
