On The Stand


What if I grew a little moustache just here?


This morning/afternoon.

Templemore, county Tipperary.

Minister for Justice Helen McEntee and Garda Commissioner Drew Harris, on the stand as new garda recruits parade at the Garda Training College.


Templemore ‘passing out’.

New guards do their thing.


The Garda Commissioner has accepted a finding by the Garda Síochána Ombudsman Commission that gardaí failed to properly investigate sexual abuse allegations.

The allegations of childhood sexual abuse were first referred to gardaí by Greater Manchester Police.

The allegations were made to GMP over incidents that occurred in Ireland and a “comprehensive report” was sent to gardaí.

But GSOC found that very little was done over a protracted period to carry out an investigation, or to deal with the suspected offender, meaning he remained a risk to children.

      And I was flicking through photos my cousin sent me years ago of a peaceful demonstration in Pretoria in the height of the apartheid era
      Funny enough the uniforms of the police were identical to the garda commissioner sat next to McEntee
      Maybe Google them

    Liam Neeson looks well after the Derry Girls thing.

    It wasn’t as bad in the end.

    “…Today’s report also states that GSOC received 59 referrals where ’the conduct of a member of the Garda Síochána may have resulted in the death of or serious harm to a person’. Thirty-four of these referrals related to fatalities. Nine related to a death following garda contact, six related to deaths of people while in garda custody (including people hospitalised while in custody), five related to deaths of people during garda pursuits and two related to sexual offences…”

      ‘Minister McEntee told reporters she was “not overly concerned” about the increase in complaints against Garda members.’
      Ah sure it’ll be grand.

    MfJ/Garda Commissioner chemistry gone rapidly downhill since glory days of Callinan & Shatter…

    Probably for the best.

    Nothing to see here, move along now…
    It appears that those who decide these things have chosen our Minister for Justice as our Next Taoiseach, once she manages to adhere religiously to the Globalist Agenda, both our Revolving Taoisigh having used up what little credibility they had promoting the Fake Pandemic & the Springtime For Putin scam.
    Plus, Mna na hÉireann, of course.
