In Pictures: New garda recruits graduate from Templemore

Almost 200 garda recruits graduated from their Co Tipperary training college with Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Justice Minister Charlie Flanagan among those at the ceremony.

The biggest allocation of graduates is to Dublin divisions, with 89 of the 197 graduates being assigned to Dublin.

Meanwhile, Cork is to get just 14 of the latest garda probationers to graduate from the force’s training college.

The allocation for Cork is also less than the numbers allocated to other areas, with, for example, 20 going to Cavan and Monaghan, and 18 going to Donegal.

Here are some of the best images from the day, taken by Irish Examiner reporter Neil Michael
