Independent TD Mick Wallace revealed new allegations made by a retired garda, Jack Doyle, in a 27 page dossier and called for the Government to appoint a new Garda chief from outside the country.

The Irish Examiner reported that:

Mr Doyle said a drug runner had told him there were opportunities to arrest the boss of a criminal gang but they failed to do so because “they have a senior Garda in their pocket”.

The drug runner told Mr Doyle of an incident in Rosslare when returning with a shipment of drugs. A customs officer stopped him and was about to search his vehicle when two plainclothes gardaí commandeered it and drove out of the terminal at speed. Customs officers followed but the gardaí lost the pursuers.

The drug runner told Mr Doyle about bringing in cocaine, ecstasy, cannabis, and firearms.

“Massive amounts of drugs were coming in and quantities were allowed to get into the hands of the criminal gang,” said Mr Doyle. “He told me how he was being well looked after financially by both the criminal gang and the gardaí.”

The drug runner also spoke of leaving a handgun in a wooded area in Cork. He contacted a detective sergeant about the gun’s location and gardaí then added a number of firearms to “beef up the find” and the media reported it as a subversive arms find.

This was done to “further their careers”, the drug runner told Mr Doyle.

Commenting on the claims, Mr Wallace said: “One of them is now an assistant commissioner. He was appointed by the former minister, Alan Shatter. This same individual has been involved in the Boylan case which is a very similar story to Jack Doyle’s.”
