Two new Deputy Garda Commissioners have been appointed by the Government this evening.

Former Assistance Commissioners Dónall Ó Cualláin and John Twomey have been promoted to the rank following an open recruitment process.

The positions became vacant following the retirement of Deputy Garda Commissioner Nacie Rice in May 2013 and the appointment of the then Deputy Garda Commissioner Nóirín O'Sullivan to the position of Garda Commissioner in November 2014.

The Minister for Justice has wished both men every success in their new jobs.
