As the taskforce's establishment moves forward, Taoiseach Simon Harris has been in communication with Garda Commissioner Drew Harris and Chief Executive of Dublin City Council Richard Shakespeare.

Within a few weeks, the Cabinet is anticipated to receive a document that is being prepared for the Government.

There will be prior engagement with the leaders of the major parties.

"The Taoiseach intends to appoint a chair and members drawn from the council, gardaí, and retail, business, community and cultural groups," said a spokesperson.

The panel is set to conclude its work in 12 weeks with recommendations.
