Deering congratulates security forces on recent historic visits

25th May, 2011


Following the recent visits of both Queen Elizabeth and US President Obama, Carlow Fine Gael TD Pat Deering has congratulated all those involved in the very successful security operation – especially the local members of An Garda Síochána and the Defence Forces.


“The visit of both dignitaries to Ireland went safely and securely due to the expertise and skills of the combined efforts of the Gardai and Defence Forces, which included a number of local personnel,” stated Deering.


“The operation and coordination of traffic, as well as cooperation with two separate external security forces, which must have added to the challenge, were carried out with great professionalism.


“The people of Carlow can be proud of both An Garda Síochána and the Defence Forces who have shown that they clearly measure up to and even exceed the standards of any security force anywhere in the world,” he concluded.
