As a response to the challenges experienced by the community in Drogheda resulting from the activities of organised crime gangs in 2020, Minister for Justice, Helen McEntee TD commissioned a Community Safety and Wellbeing scoping report produced by Vivien Geiran, former Director of the Probation Service.
The scoping report comprehensively addresses the ongoing challenges and needs experienced by communities in Drogheda and identifies opportunities to connect, support and strengthen services in the area. A Drogheda Report Implementation Plan was adopted by cabinet with 70 actions falling out of the recommendations from the report.
