The Garda ombudsman, Gsoc, is looking into whether gardaí properly investigated the complaint of a woman who said she had been repeatedly contacted by a judge who was dealing with her family law case.

Ho ho Gardai not doing their job shocker.
Harris needs to give GSOC teeth to deal with these lazy, corrupt shower. The lady was unable to find a criminal law solicitor willing to represent her. What a repugnant profession.

"Some judges were unhappy with the level of assistance and the qualifications of assistants. Candidates applying for the role with the Courts Service must have at least a 2.1 degree in law or a professional law qualification, as well as an understanding of the courts system, and some experience conducting legal research."



2.1 law degree to peel skin off a mackerel
What a country. LOL

Judges are failed solicitors who couldn't hack it in the real world.
It's about time these prize pigs were made answerable for shit work.

There's a traditional reverence for judges that holds them in the same tier as doctors.

Judges are not as important as doctors. They're not even a tenth as important as doctors.

I bet they think themselves as more important than doctors though.

The stereotypical westbrit who see themselves as "Lords". Love his British apples and M&S coffee....

Zero support for struggling Irish producers

Solicitors eat their holes. They have to.

These people were the first to go when the French rose up in 1789. They still celebrate it, and rightly so.

“After a good dinner one can forgive anybody, even one’s own relatives.” So reads the Oscar Wilde quote that opens a document instructing legal staff on the dietary preferences of Supreme Court Justice Peter Charleton.

The list, thought to be compiled by a member of the judge’s staff called a judicial assistant, offers a brief glimpse into the punctilious life of the staff who work for the State’s great legal minds.

In a two-page excerpt of the section entitled “getting food”, the judicial assistant recommends there are certain staples “that you’ll want to familiarise yourself with, as you’ll be buying these very often”.

According to the document, Mr Justice Charleton, who chaired the first phase of the Disclosures Tribunal and has sat on the Supreme Court since 2014, likes particular fruit.

“Judge Charleton is very specific that he only wants English Eating Apples. This means only certain varieties will do. The most commonly available ones in Marks and Spencer are Cox’s and Braeburn, so if you can get one of these two do so.”

The reader is also told of the specific importance of obtaining a certain brand of oatcake. “You really want to get the thin Orkney oatcakes, specifically, nothing else will do. They only sell these in Fallon and Byrne on Wicklow Street, so make a trip up there about once a month and buy about 7 or 8 packs of them.”

Prawn cocktails from Marks & Spencer are a staple, although “occasionally, the judge will prefer sushi”.

Medjool dates and stuffed olives – but not the chili-stuffed variety, only basil and garlic – are also to be sourced from that supermarket. A six pack of San Pellegrino, which the judge drinks at lunch, can be sourced from Tesco, although “it is handy to have a lot in reserve so you don’t have to buy it too often”.

The document provides helpful and close instruction on how to prepare smoked mackerel, another staple.

“Skinning the mackerel,” the section begins; “this is a difficult one.

“The mackerel that you’ll buy in Marks and Spencer cannot be served as is, but must have its skin removed. Use a flat bladed knife to peel the skin and once you have enough of it prised off from the main part of the fish, you can pull the rest off with your fingers.”
