Garda Numbers in Decline

Garda numbers are still in decline as retirement and other departures far exceed the level of recruitment over the past two years.  There was a public perception fuelled by government announcements, that garda numbers were increasing again after recruitment was recommenced in 2014 for the first time since 2009.

However new figures reveal 762 garda members departed the force or began three year career-breaks in 2014 and 2015.  In that period 550 recruits were taken into the Garda College, Templemore — a net loss of 112 members.
