According to the Garda Representative Association, this is a new Garda uniform that’s going on trial in 3 stations. Deigned by a ‘sub-committee’ apparently. Personally it reminds me of what I used to wear in Quinnsworth when I was packing bags in 1996. Hideous.

      Ooh, someone got their naggin of vodka confiscated and told to move on from outside a chipper in the ‘90’s.

    Garda uniforms always look like they’re designed for the more obesogenic end of the force. Other police forces go for something a little more dynamic. It would be interesting to see a comparison of police uniforms around the world.

    A Polo shirt? I think the ngards need sorting out but that’s cruel and unusual punishment.

    I imagine the type of get up that monks wear would be far more striking – you could embroider the slogan Robes of Justice on the back in big gold letters and hide all kinds of crimefighting gear in roomy pockets inside

    I could carry it off–not many others could.
    It looks like it’s missing sweat patches.

        The height requirements – minimum 5’9″ for men and 5’5″ for women – were abolished in 2001.

          they shouldn’t have abolished the weight restrictions while they were at it

            There was a case in England recently where Surrey Constabulary finally sacked its most unfit, desk-bound, overweight officer – and she took the case before the Employment Tribunal on the basis of unlawful discrimination on grounds of disability, gender, failure to make reasonable adjustments and victimisation.

            Her occupation, weight and persistent absenteeism led to her colleagues nicknaming her “Blue Moon”.

            She lost the case, mercifully enough.
