The Government has made an U-turn on its plan to recruit 800 new gardai in 2020.

Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan announced several times that 800 recruits would be taken into the Garda training college at Templemore in the coming year, as part of its programme to increase the strength of the force to 15,000 by 2021.
