RTE ONE TV Programme – Monday, 7.30 pm

On Monday evening, RTE One, featured a Special Documentary Programme called ” Scannal” which looked back at events following Bloody Sunday 1972 and the Burning of the British Embassy in Dublin. Retired Detective Chief Superintendent John O’ Brien (Dublin North GSRMA) and Matt Cosgrave, President, Garda Síochána Retired Members Association (GSRMA) gave interviews for the RTE programme.

The T.V. programme brought back memories for many retired Gardai who transferred to Dublin to deal with riots and security duties at that time.

    For me the highlight of this programme was the contribution of the President of the G.S.R.M.A . when he spoke at ease in his native tongue and imparted his message in a dignified coherent way,It was not mentioned that when some thugs later on took on themselves to wreck other premises in the city, a number of Gardai even though outnumbered put an end to their antics
