Tipperary Garda Road Division Safety Seminar – 16th & 17th February 2017

On Thursday 16th & Friday 17th February 2017, a Road Safety Seminar focusing on raising road safety awareness for Transition Year students, will be held at Mary Immaculate College (MIC) St. Patrick’s Campus, Cathedral Street, Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

Students from the Districts of Thurles and Nenagh will be in attendance on both days. This is the 7th successive year that this event has taken place, however it is the first time it is being held outside of the Garda Síochána College.

“Previously the event was held at the Garda Training College in, Templemore, however due to the recent increase in Garda students, the college will be unable to facilitate us this year. We are very fortunate to have such an excellent location at MIC, St. Patrick’s Campus Thurles on our doorstep. The College have been very gracious in allowing us to use their facilities for such an important event,” stated Forensic Collision Investigator, Garda Murphy.

Across these two days, the seminar will be attended by Transition Year students from:

St. Joseph’s College, Borrisoleigh – 16th February.
Coláiste Mhuire Co-Ed, Thurles – 16th February.
Coláiste Phobail Ros Cre, Roscrea – 16th February.
Our Lady’s Secondary School, Templemore – 16th February.
St. Mary’s Secondary School, Nenagh – 16th February.
Scoil Ruáin, Killenaule – 17th February.
St. Mary’s Secondary School, Newport – 17th February.
St. Joseph’s C.B.S., Nenagh – 17th February.

Approximately 200 students are expected to be in attendance on each of the two days. An additional 25 persons will also be in attendance on both days to include, guest speakers, VIP’s and teachers. The event is expected to commence at 10.00am on each day, ending at 3.00pm.

“As this seminar is focussing on Road Safety, we have invited a number of subject relevant guests to participate. These will include representatives from the Road Safety Authority, An Garda Síochána Traffic Corps, The National Ambulance Service and a serious injury collision survivor.”

“The event has been a huge success in the past and has received very positive feedback in promoting road safety and in turn helping to reduce serious and fatal road traffic collisions.”

“The management of the Mary Immaculate College are excited at the opportunity to permit An Garda Síochána to host this event on their campus in Thurles. It is the first large event to be hosted on the campus since Mary Immaculate took control approximately two years ago,” concluded Garda Murphy.
