Revealed: The other side of the thin blue line

A frontline garda has bravely broken his silence to reveal the shocking reality of life on the thin blue line.

Writing in wake of the Garda Representative Association’s decision to call off Friday’s strike, Store Street Garda Richard Morrison today gives a shocking insight in the day to day horrors faced by him and his colleagues.

In a powerful social media post he lifts on the lid on the daily nightamre of dealing with death threats, suicides and grieving families while being forced to work 22-hour shifts for poor wages.

He outlines here why he and his colleagues feel so utterly undervalued, understaffed and under-resourced that they felt they had no choice but to take the unprecedented action of calling an all out strike.
