THIS YEAR SAW the country’s police force take the unprecedented action of threatening a withdrawal of their labour.

Three ranks of An Garda Síochána were prepared to strike on four days during the month of November. The days of action were cancelled at the last-minute after the Labour Court intervened and draw up a list of recommendations, which were later accepted.

However, when it looked like the action would go ahead, the Garda Commissioner warned it would “negatively impact on public confidence” in the force, and Minister Leo Varadkar said the strikes would “change their relationship with the public forever”.

We want to know what you think: Did this year’s industrial dispute make you lose confidence in gardaí?
