    This is 100% about property commitments gone bad. Their salaries are perfectly high enough to afford normal costs of living, leaving the only possibilities as extravagant PPR's they can't afford or excessive BTL investments. No other explanations make sense.

    So on top of paying their incredible Salaries, expenses, early retirements and pensions we have to pick up the tab for their loans.

    Sabbatical and back on full pay I suppose.

    I heard a Garda representative say on the radio that if a Garda does not pay his lawful debts including mortgage they can be disciplined by the force

    01/05/1926: Garda Siochana (Discipline) Regulations. 1926.

    Check out number 22 on the link. Never knew that, does it apply to other jobs or just the guards

    This is 100% (ONE HUNDRED PERCENT) about property commitments gone bad. Their salaries are perfectly high enough to afford normal costs of living, leaving the only possibilities as extravagant PPR's they can't afford or excessive BTL investments. No other explanations make sense.
    So are you proposing a solution or what?

    Interesting article in the IT about gardai immigrating to Australia - but why were they so disillusioned with living in Ireland - they are still one of the best police forces in Europe, are they not?

    Thank God for your CAPS LOCK EXPLANATION. Otherwise how would we ever have worked out what "100%" means?

    Don't have one to be honest. Insolvency isn't really an option for them because of their jobs.

    it has never happened and dis regs have been modernised and updated. It can only apply if the debt was to a local trader,and the garda might lean on him. Does not apply to lending institutions.

    Guards want to be treated like judges. Who do they think they are ?
