The knives are out for the Garda Commissioner and yet those wielding them are hoping Noirin O'Sullivan will fall on her own sword.

They want her gone. Ideally by way of a dishonourable discharge, but under the circumstances where the party of law-and-order Fine Gael doesn't want to lose a second commissioner, a resignation would suffice.

A lesser woman or man would have given up long ago, having realised that they haven't got the support to succeed in their stated aim of transforming a beleaguered and often belittled force.
