It was on the 7th of December 1959 that the first 12 Irish women graduated as members of An Garda Síochána from the Garda Headquarters at the Phoenix Park depot, Dublin.

Today there were now more than 3,000 female members, with women accounting for approx 22 per cent of the Garda force and the most senior female member of An Garda Síochána today holds the post of Assistant Commissioner.

President Mary McAleese will deliver the opening address at a conference to mark the 50th Anniversary of Women in Policing in North Tipperary today.
The President will be welcomed to the Garda College in Templemore, Co.Tipperary by the Garda Commissioner Fachtna Murphy.
