Heading back from Q&A last night, walking over O’Connell bridge and I see a crowd gathering around the steps going down into the river. A Garda was heading down them while shouting to a guy in the river. Seems the guy decided he’d take a swim and the Garda was suggeting he change his mind. As this was happening a crowd gathered on the bridge cheering him on.
And fair play to the Garda, he got the guy out of the water without having to climb in. He brought him back up and they stuck a blanket around him. Then the firebrigade arrived:
Not the biggest fans of Gardai at times but rather them then me when they have to work night weekend shifts with so many nasty. violent and messy drunks all over the streets.
