Garda whistleblowers should have their title changed to “heroes” according to a Bundoran Independent councillor who had a motion before Tuesday’s meeting of Bundoran Town Council.
Councillor Florence Doherty had a motion for a letter to be sent to Justice Minister Alan Shatter stating full backing for the garda whistleblowers and “our disgust at the way their characters have been vilified”.
“The name whistleblowers does not do justice to these men.
“I think they should be called heroes.
“They have taken all the abuse to highlight alleged injustice and crime.
“We should all be fighting for justice.
The motion was passed.
