Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

at

January 15

 

This morning.

Via An Garda Síochána:

We have stepped up to the Swiss police Jerusalema Challenge. Gardaí across Ireland answered the call to give the public we serve a lift in these challenging times.

Mighty craic?

Or taking the absolute Swiss?

YOU decide.

Meanwhile…

      Me too.
      The boys and girls in blue are doing a diifcult job at the moment and this only goes to show they’re human like the rest of us.
      Bravo.

          ah don’t be such a miserable git Bert

          the Paddys totally won this dance off
          and the ringer there in the Templemore troupe was totally justified
          imo

          Hon Ireland

          Stitch it inta them

            If thinking this (and Gift Grub and the two johnnies and the young offenders and hardy bucks and Bridget and Eamon and Gogglebox Ireland….) are gick makes me a miserable git then I’m happy to be Victor Meldrew.

      Ah now stop, twas good. A little uplifting even. We are lucky with our police force – still needs reform but compared to other places, we are indeed lucky with our Gardaí.

    to give the public we serve a lift in these challenging times.
    The Gardaí serve their government masters, not the public.

    This what the Gardai use the internet for. Not to provide a portal to enable uploading of video evidence to report road traffic crimes. Not for us. We’ll have the social media whimsy instead. Great.

    Any of these the people who harrassed whistleblowers? Or the people who diverted money into an entertainment fund for themselves? Or who were involved in taping confidential conversations? Or who fabricated breath tests?

    It was clear major reforms of the Gardai were needed. They weren’t done and they just carry on with this “aren’t we a great bunch of lads” crap.

      That’s some of it George.

      Good to know someone has been reading BS news in the last few years and not jumping straight to the comment section.

    Oh and the horses dance too, ah come on… that would make the most cynical of you smile!

    We live on such a beautiful island, when you see shots of it like that you really have to be so grateful.

  4. Marbe

    So so good, and selling this lovely little country. Forget all the horror at the moment and concentrate on joy when we can. Thank you, thank you. The horses, Wow.

    well it’s a better use of taxpayers money than paying for charger’s cans, broadband and mickey tape.

      1. scottser

        when his mammy is out he tapes up his mickey, dresses like a girl and posts on here as ‘kate’.

    cringe factor is reaching new heights.

    if i was the garda commissioner i would get them out on bikes and walking the streets. i have respect the gardai, think they do a great job, but maybe its the tight clothes, but most of them look like they could shed a few pounds. patrolling in squad cars has not been good for their health. its not their fault,

    Nice to see them taking time off from enforcing draconian measures that destroy our civil liberties.
    But hey, we’re all in this together.

  8. V aka Frilly Keane

    i enjoyed that
    fair play to them all
    especially the horsies

    and yer ‘wans ‘rock” from a bit of improv reel was slick very slick
    and I only saw on lad with the shurt that needed tucking in at the back

    1. Janet, dreams of an alternate universe

      ah not that many, it’s basically some wooden toe tapping in a line not a hip thrust /roll in sight, sure you wouldn’t work up a sweat

    All well and good, them out dancing. The other side of the coin is policing funerals. 300 mourners, some who came from across the water were given a garda car escort from Enniscorthy to a cemetery on the outskirts of Wexford, and a few more gardai then to direct traffic at the cemetery. Last week. How many allowed at a funeral?
    No enforcement of the law during these covid times. Aiding and abetting more like. And these are the force then that stop people like you and I and question us about our movements and our distance from home. And relay advice etc.

    Save me, save me, save me,

    Don’t leave me here!

     

    My place is not here,

    My kingdom is not here,

    Rescue me!

    Come with me!
     
    Save me, save me, save me,

    Don’t leave me here,

    Save me, save me, save me,

    Don’t leave me here!

    That was excellent and very enjoyable, also, I think while the fedpol thermal imaging on the roof was a nice touch, I think we beat them with the Irish jig and horses, not to mention the beautiful locations where it was shot around the country – but the Kerry crowd had to write it in the sand to be sure! It’s interesting that the Swiss police only asked the Gardaí (as another neutral country) to partake in this challenge.

    This is one of the most positive videos I’ve seen in a long time and I really like the music as well.

    BS, my comments seem to have been moderated into the abyss – what did I say to warrant such treatment? I complimented the Gardaí on their performance, especially with the Irish dancer and the horses. Although, I did pose a question about the historical neutrality of both countries, hence the Jerusalema challenge from fedpol to the Gardaí.

    Am I missing something?
