AN GARDA SÍOCHÁNA is at the centre of another controversy.

It was revealed last week that gardaí had miscounted the number of breath tests they carried out over the past five years by almost one million.

It was also revealed that almost 15,000 people were wrongly convicted and had penalties imposed on them by the courts.

Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin said yesterday that Garda Commissioner Nóirín O’Sullivan should reconsider her position if clarity isn’t given on how these errors occurred.

Meanwhile, Sinn Féin will today publish a motion of no confidence in O’Sullivan in the wake of the new figures.

O’Sullivan has also come under pressure recently in relation to the scandal surrounding Garda whistleblower Maurice McCabe and Tusla.

So, what do you think?

Today we’re asking: Do you have confidence in the Garda Commissioner?
