Filleadh ar an Teampeall Mór – TG4 Wed. 15th October.

GSRMA ag rá  —– “Comhghairdeachas dos na daoine go léir a ghlac páirt sa chlár iontac sin”.  Filleadh ar An Teampall Mór’ (‘Return To Templemore’) was a TG4 Broadcast at 9.30 pm on Wednesday 15th October 2014 .  It looked back to  1964, when the Gardaí moved their training facility from PhoenixPark to Templemore.  Fifty years after the first recruits graduated from this new facility, they same members returned to commemorate the occasion.

During this documentary, TG4  met some members from the class of ’64 and discover how their lives and careers played out over the last 50 years. Many of them were involved in some of the most high profile cases the State has ever seen – one even became a Garda Commissioner – all of them remember a different more innocent time as they reflect on their lives as Gardaí.

Profiling both the men of Templemore and the town that embraced them, this documentary provides a unique insight into the lives of the men who served our State.

Those who featured during the documentary were: former Commissioner Noel Conroy as well as Sergeant John Reynolds PhD. The documentary featured extensive interviews with the Gardaí who passed out in 1964, including, Tom Sands, Micheál de Búrca, Michael Dalton, Martin Fitzpatrick, Seosamh Ó Conghaile, Pádraig Moran and Pádraig Ó Liatháin.

    I was very impressed by the standard of Irish on display. People asked me did I see the programme and they all regretted how Ireland has changed over the years. One man who was a scout leader who brought children from the most deprived areas of Dublin to rural Ireland and whether the Garda Station was open or closed did not really matter as they were welcome to knock up the local SERGEANT OR GARDA living nearby. These young people then saw the Garda as friends, The Garda stations and that social interaction is now history.
