    The gardai didn't drink at night time in the old days but a sergeant might pop in for one or two very occasionally in daytime off duty. They knew that their presence would intimidate customers if they overstayed their welcome.

    I can understand it in politics where most ministerial posts are window dressing except for traditional ministries, but I can't understand how our great poet Patrick Cavanagh was bumped from secondary school curriculums for it. The latter shows an extreme political correctness and poor aesthetic sensibility among the education bureaucrats.
