Garda Commissioner Callinan Announces Shock Resignation

CALLINAN

Garda Commissioner Martin Callinan has announced his shock resignation with immediate effect following the penalty points controversy.

Callinan said he had informed the Government and added that he had taken the decision for family reasons.

Those within the force who were close to him are believed to be shocked by his decision.

The commissioner had been under severe pressure for the past two months since his appearance at the Public Accounts Committee, where he labelled Garda whistleblowers as “disgusting”.

Some believe Callinan may have been forced into the decision in an attempt to strengthen the position of Minister For Justice Alan Shatter.
