So we have a police force that uses private computers (data protection much) , has no money to put cameras in stations to protect everyone form police/prisoner violence yet no doubt full priority will be given to send cops off to Carraroe and Spideal for a bit of re-education.
For all we know someone insisting on using Irish maybe hoping that the garda doesnt have the patience to find another cop so is hoping to be let off. Surely Irish speakers have an obligation not to act the d1ck and be as helpful as possible whoever they are dealing with.
God forbid that that a mutation creates a gay muslim Irish speaking traveller who is also vegan and lactose intolerant , as Scottie would say "the system can ne take it!"
Irish language awareness programme for gardaí - RTÉ News
An Irish language awareness programme is being developed for gardaí following concerns about the competence of some members of the force to conduct business through Irish.
It follows an investigation by An Coimisinéir Teanga, who is launching his annual report in Galway.
The office monitors how public bodies comply with the provisions of the Official Languages Act.
A total of 756 complaints were made last year - the largest number since the office of An Coimisinéir Teanga was established.
Most were resolved informally, but 13 formal investigations were instigated.
In one instance an Irish speaker who had been stopped for a minor road traffic matter in Dublin was arrested and detained until a garda was found to deal with him through Irish.
