The Irish police force, the Garda Síochána has a new training centre at Templemore in Tipperary.
On 21 February 1964 the Garda Síochána training centre opened at McCann Barracks, Templemore, County Tipperary. Recruits to the Irish police force are trained here. The decentralisation of Garda training from Dublin to Templemore changed the fortunes of the north Tipperary town.
The 'Discovery' series went to the new Garda training centre to find out what training Irish police officers receive.
This episode of Discovery was broadcast on 30 November, 1964. The reporter is P. P. O'Reilly.
Discovery was a documentary series broadcast on RTE between 1964 and 1967. Discovery, which first aired on Tuesday, 14 January, 1964 touched on many aspects of Irish life with an occasional spotlight on events of particular interest.
