A GARDA Síochána Policing Exhibition opens today in Limerick City Council Building on Merchant’s Quay as part of the force’s Centenary celebrations this year.
The exhibition will run in Istabraq Hall until September 30 (excluding weekends) and is open from 10am to 4pm daily.
This exhibition will display a number of old uniforms, information regarding the history of An Garda Síochána, a number of crime scene photographs relevant to Limerick, as well as a number of different artefacts and a mock “crime scene”.
A member of An Garda Síochána will be in attendance at the exhibition every day.
If any group of more than 15 is planning on attending, an email should be sent to henrystreet.sergeants@
garda.ie with the number of persons expected to attend so an appropriate time slot can be allocated.
