This morning, the Irish Independent reports:
Garda management has ordered a major investigation into “irregularities” surrounding vehicle checkpoints in the Cork district, the Irish Independent has learned.
Senior Garda bosses are probing whether false checkpoints were logged on Pulse – the official Garda computer system.
Two rank-and-file gardaí are under investigation and face the prospect of disciplinary action, according to well-placed sources.
The gardaí are suspected of having set up false checkpoints while on the clock.
