O’Toole floated as replacement for Orde

It would appear that Niall O’Dowd, the prominent Irish-American publisher of The Irish Voice, has been amongst the first to float the name of a potential successor to Hugh Orde as Chief Constable of the PSNI. In this article, O’Dowd suggests that the current Chief Inspector of the Garda Inspectorate, Kathleen O’Toole, may be poised to throw her name into the hat. The US born O’Toole is a former member of the Patten Commission and also served as the first female Commissioner of the Boston police force from 2004-2006.
