Letters to the Editor

Should we, the people of the Republic of Ireland, begin to discuss the unthinkable, ie, the disbandment of An Garda Síochána?

Is 95 years not too long for a police force to exist with minimal reform? Some people naively thought that the uncovering by the Morris Tribunal of hideous and deep-rooted Garda corruption in Donegal would bring about change. How foolish can you be?

The RIC and the RUC were disbanded and life improved somewhat for the populations whom they allegedly served.
