But if the parents are proactive from day one they can dress their children in nice clothes such as corduroy pants and nice waistcoats, maybe with moccasins and smart socks. These people will more than likely end up hanging around with well dressed and respectable people.

It's not that complicated like.
Wow, if only the Gardaí could station themselves outside Cummins, and Lifestyle, and other outlets selling tracksuits they could nip crime in the bud.

Are you related to Baldy Noonan by any chance - he was the guy that wanted to outlaw the wearing of Hoodies.

Many of the biggest crimes in this country have been carried out by guys who wear shirts and ties.

Oh I read your bit about corduroy pants and moccasins - obviously a piss take. Soz like

The Gardai have overspent their budget by €32 million and now they need to cut back their spending.


The Gardaí overspent its budget for the first eight months of 2019 by €32m - and now a range of cutbacks have been introduced to reduce the deficit for the rest of the year.

Commissioner Drew Harris has said that the profiled budget up until the end of August was €1.09bn, with the overspend amounting to €32m.

As a result, Mr Harris said, "it has been necessary to identify a range of capital and current expenditure adjustments to year end".

The Gardaí chief made the comments in his monthly report to the Policing Authority in which the oversight body are briefed on a wide range of matters including finance and operational successes.

In the most recent report, published this week, Mr Harris outlined that the total net expenditure by the end of August was just over €1bn.

This was €2.4m more than profiled. However, if savings in some subheads due to timing differences are excluded, the gross year overspend by the end of August was €32m.

The cost of the visits of US President Donald Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence, estimated to be between €15m and €18m, was drawn from the annual Garda budget.

Late last month an overtime ban across the organisation was introduced, save for exceptional circumstances such as major criminal investigations or gangland operations, which still need approval from Garda management. The cutbacks on overtime was one of several measures introduced to reduce the overspend.

In his opening remarks within the report, Drew Harris also outlined the importance of community policing within the new Garda operating model.

Between 50pc and 60pc of all Garda resources in each division will be devoted to community policing.

Two distinct crime trends were also noted, which were the downward trend in property crime, and the increase in offences against the person, sexual crimes and public order offences.

These, Mr Harris said, were being closely monitored and adequate operational activities to reduce and prevent crime will be carried out.

In terms of Garda numbers, by September 6, a total of 495 had been reassigned to operational duties.

Last month there were 173 gardaí on sick leave after being injured on duty, while 39 were suspended from duty at the beginning of last month.

Policing success were also highlighted within the Commissioner's Report to the Policing Authority.

They included the policing of the Electric Picnic festival in Stradbally, Co Laois; the Garda operation against a suspected ATM theft gang in Cavan; and an operation by the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau on a burglary crew in west Dublin.

Handy out all the same but it's getting harder to have one sorted now, the garda name makes it easier but you still need your contact to get to him before your details are entered in to computer.

Seem to remember back in the day when Cork were beating the kirry animals on a regular basis under the stewardship of one Billy Morgan, that a particular kirry garda based in Cork went out of his way to be a continual pain in the @rse for Billy.

Let he who has not benefitted from having a speeding ticket wiped be the one to toss the first stone.

O’Mahony by any chance?

He got away a few bits and pieces himself. He caused fierce hassle down in Killarney one night years ago. When it went to court the crooked judge dismissed witness accounts and believed his side of the story.

I've never had a speeding ticket full stop! Ever! Much less have one wiped. And I'm driving for over 40 years!
