On Thursday 28th April, our 6th Classes had a visit from three members of the Garda Síochana; Garda Alan Regan, Sergeant Mick Walsh and Garda Kevin Farrelly. They spoke to us about their work as Gardaí and also about behaviour and respect in general. It was very informative and we learned some interesting things - it was a great insight into the difficult work that the Gardaí have to do.
We also had a little bit of fun and got to see some of the Garda Training equipment in action, such as: training shields and real handcuffs! The Gardaí also used the "Speed Gun" to check our running speeds on the yard - some of our runners very nearly got speeding tickets!!
We would like to thank Garda Alan and his colleagues for taking the time to visit us.
