    Sad, very sad, three retired men prevented from enjoying their life by society. Lets hope they will get over the traumatic ordeal and enjoy life again. We all know that things will never be the same again for them. Listening to the media reports of this incident, one would think that G.S.O.C were the heroes rushing to protect the public from the gardai. Perception is now more important than what is right or wrong. Perhaps Mr John Canty in his Letter to Irish Examiner (displayed on this website) and Mr.Joe Barry’s article in the “Indo Farming Supplement” (also on this website) are more in tune with reality than those that make laws to protect the law abiding citizens.
