    I still recall vividly the night the Sgt in the control room asked all to say prayers for the young Gerry Lovett when he put his life on the line on duty.he made it and got a Scott medal, He could have composed the letter equally well in Irish a native speaker. The DMP were unarmed like the Garda Siochana . The poor lad shot in High Street in Dublin was from the Beara penninsula similar to the rest of us from rocky West Cork
