A Shift In Style And Appearance


From top: Garda Commissioner Drew Harris with Policing Authority chaired by Chairperson Josephine Feehily in Dublin Castle yesterday; Demonstration on Frederick Street following the forced removal of a vacant property.

“We are likely to have further of these (protests). And I think we need a public facing account about what our responsibilities and roles are in these situations,

People are mobile and available to support (a protest) and it wouldn’t be a time of our choosing.

But certainly there were issues about our appearance and the style and the manner in which we went about it which were of concern to me.

“This is a very emotive issue and we don’t know when the next one is going to arrive.”

    Crone earning her cashola again. The balaclavas will be back to protect other masked thugs soon enough.

      I am completely speculating here but i suspect the illegal van was a throwback to a time when ‘Shur twill be grand’ and nobody thought to tell the Commissioner this was how things were done because, well, that’s how things were done.

      I’ll be mighty surprised if that happens again.

      Or, of course, it could be a case of new boss, same as the old boss. We’ll see, I suppose.

        I think queenie also mentioned that the van had no MOT and was basically an accident waiting to happen

      I’m thinking that was all set up to welcome Drew to the force. Dark ops. UDA. Balaclavas. Just to put a marker down about who he’s dealing with.
