The hand of history was on the shoulders of Gardai who marched through Louth’s major towns over the last week as part of An Garda Síochána centenary celebrations.

Crowds lined the streets of Dundalk on Thursday as local gardai were joined by the Garda band and the Garda ceremonial unit in a parade from Market Square to Dundalk Garda Station at the Crescent, where a commemorative tree was planted.
