A study in courage
The story of Garda Maurice McCabe has rarely been out of the headlines. It has shaken the establishment and rippled through the highest echelons of Irish society, from An Garda Siochána through the media and government. For the rst time, Maurice and Lorraine McCabe tell their personal story in a twopart TV documentary for RTÉ. With candid interviews and archive footage, the lm tell the story of this intensely private family who were catapulted into the limelight after Sergeant McCabe became the country’s most prominent Garda whistleblower. RTÉ reporter Katie Hannon details the events that saw Sergeant McCabe become isolated and ostracised within the police force for simply doing what he saw as the right thing. The lms also show how Maurice McCabe was subsequently the victim of a whispering campaign that led to the establishment of a Tribunal of Inquiry, chaired by Mr Justice Peter Charleton.
