Cavan woman gets new garda appointment

A Cavan woman is among the country's top gardaí to be assigned a new role in the latest positional shake up announced by Commissioner Drew Harris.

Superintendent Bronagh O'Reilly, a native of Gowna and attached to Tallaght Garda Station, will now have responsibility for Tallaght Community Engagement Functional Area.

She previously served as Detective Inspector at Finglas Garda Station, but was appointed the new superintendent of Tallaght Garda Station back in June of this year when she replaced fellow Cavan native Tomas Gormley who moved to become Detective Superintendent at Clondalkin Garda Station.

The appointments take place in line with the new Garda Operating Model being introduced as part of A Policing Service for the Future, a plan based on the report of the Commission on the Future of Policing in Ireland.
