'Gardaí have understandably reached the end of their tether'
With only days to go before more than 12,000 gardaí go on an unprecedented strike, a realisation of the chaos that now looms has only just dawned on the Government.
Speaking to one newspaper yesterday, one unnamed representative said there was "a new awareness" within Government of the seriousness of the situation the country faces.
Fantastic, isn't it? The Garda Representative Association (GRA) announced four-days of strike action on September 28 and, more than a month later, the Government is finally starting to take them seriously.
