...but, on the other hand, maybe not
Sir — There is much speculation a civilian may be considered for the post of garda commissioner. In my opinion there can only be one man for the job — Michael O’Leary!
Can you imagine the transformation he would lead? O’Leary would charge drivers to blow in the bag and charge double for a second bag. Gardai directing traffic would also be given new garda lotto tickets to sell to motorists. And what about the advertising opportunities on garda patrol cars?
Using his Ryanair experience, he would charge phone calls to the gardai at a premium rate and push all contact online. He would end garda allowances — and instead of a uniform allowance, gardai would have to lease their uniform monthly from him, generating a new stream of revenue that would fund the marketing budget
