Regina O’Doherty | Broadsheet.ie

A blogger alleges she was stopped by Gardaí in Dublin airport and forced to sign a piece of paper she didn't read or they would not allow her to catch her plane.

They allege a complaint was made against her to Pearse St. Garda station.

So, two cops travel to Dublin airport to caution a blogger that Regina apparently doesn't like.

Sounds like nonsense.

Right up until the point in the broadsheet article where it says

A spokeswoman for Ms Doherty said:

“If there is an investigation going on or enquiries being made by the gardai, it wouldn’t be appropriate for any comment but I am aware of a complaint having been made. It’s a matter for the gardaí.”

So, a complaint was made. We can only assume the rest is true.

Is it really a job for the Gardaí to threaten bloggers that Ministers don't like?

Can I now expect a visit from the Branch?

Just be glad that DC is no longer the lady of the house round these parts or he'd have forwarded your sign up email address to your employer.

Wouldn't be the first time the blueshirts used the branch to silence those they don't like.

Blueshirts are a dangerous bunch.

In that case we can only hope they have got it right this time too.
Be careful that picture on your wall of Eoin O'Duffy doesn't fall off and clock your head.

I always wanted my own personal police force, how would I get that also?

How many ex East German stasi have jobs in an Garda Siochana?

This story needs to be followed up fully.

be a mediocre female politician in an era of stifling political correctness where talent is less important than optics.

Dresden, it took me a few reads to realise that it wasn't Regina getting on the plane, but the blogger
