Taoiseach on London terror attacks

We utterly condemn the cowardly attack in London last night and reject the warped motives and world view behind them. This is sheer madness.

Ireland will continue to work exceptionally closely with the UK and all of our colleagues on security matters and prevention as far as possible. Full details of this attack are only emerging. I have been in contact with the Tánaiste and Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald this morning and will speak to Prime Minister May when appropriate.

The Irish people stand with our close neighbours once again.

We continue to closely monitor the situation. Anyone who has serious concerns about loved ones in London can contact the Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin on 01 408 2000, or the Irish Embassy in London on 00 44 207 235 2171
