A State commemoration of the Royal Irish Constabulary and the Dublin Metropolitan Police has been postponed after a large public backlash.

Minister for Justice Charlie Flanagan announced the deferral of the event which had been scheduled to take place in Dublin Castle on Friday after a number of politicians including Independent Alliance ministers John Halligan and Kevin Boxer Moran said they would boycott the commemoration.

To discuss this further, Gavan was joined by Eunan O’Halpin, Professor of Contemporary Irish History at Trinity College Dublin and part of the Advisory Group on the Centenary Commemorations.
