Tribute Paid To Assistant Garda Commissioner John O’Driscoll.

Minister for Justice Mrs Helen McEntee has paid tribute, on behalf of the Government and the State, to Assistant Garda Commissioner Mr John O’Driscoll as he retires today, following 41 years of service in An Garda Síochána.

Minister for Justice Mrs McEntee stated:

“Mr John O’Driscoll has served the State with integrity and distinction over the course of his 41 year career in policing. Throughout his career, and particularly in difficult days since 2016, John has embodied the finest tradition of An Garda Siochana. His experience, dedication and leadership ensured the success of the Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau in effectively disrupting organised crime groups and bringing to justice many of the most serious criminals.

In recent months months, we have seen the work of An Garda Síochána with their international law enforcement partners come to fruition to effectively tackle criminal groups – Mr O’Driscoll work has been central to quietly harnessing this coalition of support.

As he retires today, I know Mr O’Driscoll’s heart will always remain in policing and his legacy will have a lasting impact – on all those who have had the privilege to work with him and with the public he has served with such steadfastness.

I wish John and all those close to him many years of healthy and happy retirement.”
