Visit from Garda Mounted Support Unit 

On Wednesday February 12th we had a visit from Garda Kenny and Garda Daly on their horses Cumhall and Dultach.

The guards gave information about their horses.
Everybody listened and waited patiently to rub one of the horses.
The queue started.
Everybody got a turn to rub Cumhall or Dultach.

Cumhall and Dultach are based in The Phoenix Park with stables at Árus an Uachtaráin. The duties of the unit are community policing, event control, crowd control and searches for missing persons. Thank you Garda Kenny and Garda Daly for coming to visit us.
