10. Policed in Ireland – A Voice for Niall


The Policed Podcast In March of 2019, 4 hours after he was released from Garda custody for a public order offence, 20 year old Niall took his own life on the family farm. This week his mother, Johanna bravely and powerfully speaks to us about what kind of young man Niall was, the struggle they’ve had to find out from GardaĆ­ what exactly happened, and the concerns they have about how young people are being handled by police. Dr Roxanna Dehaghini, Cardiff University and Doireann Ansbro of the Irish Council of Civil Liberties give crucial context on this harrowing story.
