THE GARDAÍ WILL ‘fully co-operate’ with a commission of inquiry about the allegations made in the Guerin Report, says the Garda Commissioner.

Noirín O’Sullivan said that she was studying the 300-page report, but that she will examine what the force can do in the short-term to act on it.

“The report is detailed and extensive, and I am currently studying it closely in conjunction with my senior management team to identify immediate actions that can be taken as part of our process of change that is currently underway.”

She reiterated the words of the new Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald, who said that if root and branch reform of the force was needed, it would come.

“As the Minister for Justice & Equality Frances Fitzgerald TD said today, ‘An Garda Síochána is fully committed to a sea change in its culture and to re-new and re-invigorate the organisation’.

“An Garda Síochána will fully co-operate and facilitate the commission of investigation in its examination of the serious issues raised by the report.”
