Ringsend Active Retirement Association joins the Gardaí

The Ringsend Active Retirement Association recently spent a very enjoyable day at the Garda Training College in Templemore. They were accompanied by Garda Paddy Collins and Garda Katie Sammon and greeted on arrival by Sergeant Michael Reynolds who was their guide for the day.
After enjoying a three-course lunch in the dining hall they visited the museum and even got to try on various hats from the past and take photos. Later there was a talk in the lecture hall followed by a film about the history of the State and how the An Garda Síochána came to be formed, and about their current training methods.
The group had a wonderful time and found Sergeant Reynolds a most informative guide. The trip was sponsored by the Aviva Community Fund.
