Garda credited with tackling organised crime in Limerick receives promotion

Dave Sheahan

Recongnised for successfully tackling organised crime in the city, an “overwhelmed” Garda Chief Superintendent Dave Sheahan said he will really miss Limerick after his promotion to the rank of Assistant Commissioner.

The role of Chief Superindendent is likely to be filled in a temporary capacity until a new appointment is made.

The Wexford native moved from Waterford to Limerick more than eight years ago when he promised to work with the people of Limerick to make it a safer place and during his tenure has seen some of the local crime bosses jailed for lengthy sentences.

Speaking to the Limerick Post on Wednesday, he said, “I’m overwhelmed, to say the least. I am going to miss this place”.
