    Perhaps one should also look at Tom Brady article in the Indo Thursday 15th May – re Brian Purcell and how things are easily forgotten. Many, myself included remember those incidents that now count for nothing in PR and spin except the old school of Tom Brady. Another man from my youth Michael Carty former C/Supt has an article in the Indo on Tuesday 13th May and strange I just heard JILL Kirby the Canadian Born Journalist on the radio for a few minutes on Friday morning and did not not hear the full programme but her view was most people herself included that dealt with ordinary gardai found them decent people and wondered about all the headlines. Frontline Staff that deal with public are under siege by accountability gurus that never did frontline work but love the media headlines.
