Dublin's Lord Mayor Gerry Breen is to hold talks this week with the Health Service Executive about its policy of locating drug-maintenance clinics in the city centre, thereby attracting thousands of addicts in from the suburbs every day.

He has directed staff to 'map' the locations of maintenance and treatment centres, as well as homeless hostels, most of which are located in Dublin 1, north of the Liffey.
