Gardaí visit the school

Garda Tony Carmody, Garda Mary Kelly and Garda Robert Reidy paid a visit to junior and senior infant classes. They arrived in two garda cars. They showed us the squad car and we all got a chance to get in. We got a chance to turn on the sirens which were very loud. We also got a chance to put on the flashing lights. Some of us got to sit in the jail part of the car. They showed us the pepper spray which they use if somebody is getting out of control. They spray it on their eyes and last for 20 minutes. They showed us the baton and the handcuffs. They put the handcuffs on some of us and one of the girls got to handcuff Mr Curran! They passed around the garda hat and we got to put it on. We really enjoyed the visit
