Fireworks started much earlier this year

52 seizures of illegal fireworks have been made so far this year, compared to 152 for the whole of 2016.

The loud bangs of fireworks began much earlier this year with some communities reporting a problem as early as August.

As a result the Garda operation which deals with the policing of Halloween has been brought forward.

In addition, the Justice Minister has launched a new campaign this year, asking people not to add to the problem and to think of front-line workers and vulnerable elderly people amid Covid-19.

Sinn Fein is bringing a motion in the Dail this afternoon on the Issue of community safety and the misuse of fireworks.
