A Garda officer is up for anything ... nudge nudge [1]

Garda Síochána na hÉireann often translated as "The Guardians of the Peace of Ireland" but more commonly know as Keystone Cops of Ireland.

Some have made allegations that the Garda colluded with the IRA during the 'troubles'. However you should never mistake sheer incompetence for evil intentions ... like when my mate's cousin's pocheen still blew up in 2003 and the Garda reported it as a terrorist's bomb making factory!

Allegations of fraud and corruption have been rife for years and tend to centre on...

  • cross-border policing
  • abuse of powers
  • mishandling of cases and complaints

For a 'more thoughtful and slightly less biased view' compiled largely by crusties and Sinn Fein sympathisers ,look to the other wiki .
