Mayor of Limerick in garda probe | The Sunday Times

This story was also carried in yestreday's Irish Times but the motorist involved was not named.

"Garda Headquarters has ordered an internal disciplinary inquiry in Limerick after a car crash last December in which a man was found to be three times over the drink-driving limit, but was never prosecuted."

Garda HQ orders internal inquiry in drink-driving case

It was first revealed yesterday on pie,ie that the motorist involved was a prominent local politician (without naming him).

However the thread was subsequently deleted by moderator Stringjack.
Will anything happen, me thinks not.

What is this Stringjack guy up to---the thread was pulled with no notice to any of the posters--Icontributed to it but got no notice that my posts were being obliterated or why.
The Irish Times were not intimitated into pulling their article from their website--is there no appeal against this type of censorship?

He was not a cllr for a year before FG and FF had a pact and voted him as Major.All other cllrs voted against his nomination. Cronyism of the highest order.
As for AGS, it's another example of political policing.

Limerick Mayor Limerick

There's a story that beggars belief,
But the mayor's has breathed a sigh of relief,
All he need was patience,
And a statute of limitations,
Since being told "blow in the bag, chief"

Not that I am aware of.

Interestingly though, in this case the line being spun is that an unnamed "young garda" is responsible.

While at the time of the Willie O'Dea slander/false High Court evidence scandel, Willie was spinning the line that an unnamed Garda office (whose name Willie couldn't remember) was responible for providing him with false information.

Will be interesting to see how much National media attention this one gets, or will the media turn a blind eye because they can also benefit from similar situations.

How fast was the shop going when it hit him? 1180 kilometers/hr, Judge.


At the equator, the circumference of the Earth is 40,070 kilometers, and the day is 24 hours long so the speed is 1670 kilometers/hour ( 1037 miles/hr). This decreases by the cosine of your latitude so that at a latitude of 45 degrees, cos(45) = .707 and the speed is .707 x 1670 = 1180 kilometers/hr. You can use this formula to find the speed of rotation at any latitude.

Yesterday's action by Stringjack was the most craven, gutless, establishment-grovelling piece of censorship ever seen on p.ie. It's not often this website leads a significant current event story that is being avoided like the plague by major media outlets locally and nationally and it's an insult to the principles on which p.ie was founded that a functionary on this website should have joined those forces attempting to hide the truth.

I'm sure Niall Collins will be jumping up and down about this in the Dáil demanding answers as to why a politician was allowed get off a drink driving rap.

Or maybe not.

That's a shame.
I have suggested that the moderators get a basic guide to what actually is an actionable post.
As there seems to be a complete lack of understanding.

A friendly solicitor would surely do this pro bono.

The Mayor is married into the Collins family.

But I'm sure it was just a case of human error on behalf of some rookie Garda. ;-)

of course he will: Niall's adherence to the blindness of justice is unequalled
