Casiisland, County Kerry St Patrick’s Day Parade
Via Radio Kerry:
Gardaí are investigating the use of a garda uniform which appeared on a float which took part in the St Patrick’s Day Parade in Castleisland, County Kerry.
Under the Garda Síochána Act 2005, it’s an offence if a person, whether a garda or not, has in their possession any article of garda uniform or equipment supplied to an officer and who isn’t able to satisfactorily account for possessing it.
Dan Lynch from Pound Road, Castleisland, who created the float, confirmed the hat and hi-vis jacket were part of garda uniform but would not state where he acquired them from.
The Garda Press Office says Tralee gardaí are investigating the matter and further developments will be reported in due course.
