A visit from Garda Ronan

Garda Ronan shows us his handcuffs

Stephen's Dad, Ronan, came to visit us yesterday to tell us all about his work as a Garda. We were all very excited to see him. He asked us all what we thought a garda did and there was some great discussion!! He explained that the Gardai are there to keep us all safe and to protect us and he also discussed the importance of Road Safety with us.
Garda Ronan had a special belt with different compartments on it which held a torch, notebook, handcuffs and a walkie-talkie on it. He explained what they were for and why he uses them.
We also looked at his uniform (navy trousers, tie, jacket, hat , black boots and a light blue shirt). His shirt also had a special number on it attached on the shoulders along with the letters GA for Galway City.
Some of us would like to be a guard when we grow up. A huge thank you to Garda Ronan for coming to visit us.
