A MEMBER OF the Garda training college has resigned while an investigation is underway into an alleged drink-driving incident in Co Tipperary earlier this week. 

His Garda colleagues are probing an incident in which a car crashed outside Templemore and the driver was suspected of having earlier socialised in a bar in the town. 

Photographs of the badly-damaged car have been circulating on social media. 

Gardaí have confirmed that they are investigating a road traffic incident in the area and that a trainee garda has also resigned from the force, although they did not link the two incidents.

A spokesman said: “Gardai in Tipperary are investigating a road traffic incident which occurred on 4 September, 2019. Today, Friday, 6 September, a trainee member of An Garda Síochána has resigned.”
