Minister Coveney on Parsons Green Terrorist Incident


“I am shocked by the incident in London this morning, which the Metropolitan Police are treating as a suspected terrorist attack. My Department is monitoring the situation closely through the Irish Embassy in London and the Consular Division in Dublin. As of now, we have no indications to suggest that any Irish citizens have been affected. 

Anyone with concerns for loved ones in London can contact my Department on 00353 (1) 4082527. On behalf of the Irish Government, I wish to express our solidarity with the people of London at this time.”
