The media is afraid of the Garda…

Vincent Browne’s nightly show on RTE radio has been tracking the final stages of the Morris Tribunal into a bizarre set of events in which it seems the Garda in Donegal, not only mistreated a straightforward hit and run accident, it seems that some evidence was fabricated and witnesses who could have provided alibis not taken. Browne gives a stirring account of how he believe things went so badly wrong (and why it took nearly ten years to get to the bottom of the truth) in yesterday’s Sunday Business Post.

A slightly inhuman presence that bans bad comments and works late at night to remove the wrinkles in Slugger’s technical carpet. You will need to know about the comments policy to stay off the fightin’ side of me and there is a bit of background about me here. You can email me using this spam-proof link if you really need to, and Slugger is @sluggerotoole on Twitter. But above all, remember, Play the ball and not the man.
