Delivery Drivers Attacked in West West Dublin

Tesco 'curtailing' deliveries due to 'several incidents' in West Tallaght

16/04/2019 - 08:27:00

Tesco has suspended shopping deliveries to West Tallaght in Dublin.

It follows reports that drivers have been attacked, robbed and even shot at, by youths armed with a pellet gun.

Tesco Ireland says there have been several incidents of anti-social behaviour in the area and that it would be "curtailing deliveries".

The company says it appreciates the inconvenience caused but it has taken the move to protect its colleagues and its customers.

It is unclear when, or if, deliveries will resume.

A statement from Tesco read:

From time to time we may curtail services in an area for a period of time due to incidents of anti-social behaviour in order to protect our colleagues and our customers.

At present following several incidents, we are curtailing deliveries in a small number of areas in West Tallaght with an alternative collection option open to customers at Clondalkin and Naas.

While we appreciate the inconvenience caused, the safety of our colleagues and customers is of paramount importance.

Fianna Fáil Councillor Charlie O'Connor says it is a service that people in the community really rely on.

"There have been a number of attacks on Tesco drivers in recent times and that's just not good enough," said Mr O'Connor.

"The point is that this deprives the community - a vulnerable community - of an essential service because the Tesco drivers have been providing an excellent service to the community.

"We must ask the gardaí to do all they can to stop this activity."

Why ask the Gardai to do the almost impossible task of stopping youths from bombarding Tesco vans, Buses and Taxies in their area, the youths will just stop bombarding these vehicles while the Gardai are there and then restart as soon as they leave.
Let the authorities inform the residents/parents that IF THEY DO NOT STOP THEIR YOUTHS FROM ANTI-SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR THEN THE SERVICE WILL BE DISMISSED AND YOUR MA, DA, GRANNY, AUNT AND UNCLE WILL BE LEFT WITHOUT A SERVICE.

Most likely it will fall on Deaf Ears because of what I see in the council estates in Cork most would do well to be able to Read !

I guess the levels of anti-social behaviour create vulnerabilities. For example women and the like might be afraid to go to the store so are left with no groceries while the delivery men are afraid to deliver and, in extreme cases, risk dying of starvation or being battered when the men come home to no dinner?

The men were probably out robbing Lidl with a Poclain Digger!

in my experience, tis the other way around nowadays........vulnerable-- they certainly are not.
