Last night, TV3 aired a documentary all about St. Patrick's Day and the lengths the Gardaí have to go to keep all our shenanigans in place.
Paddy's day is without doubt, one of the few days a year that nearly every Irish person lets rip. And so the Gardaí are forced to deal with all kinds of shite that day, and night.
Policing Paddy's went down as a hit with viewers last night, with people taking to Twitter to highlight their admiration of the guards. Yet we somehow think that this won't have any impact on next year's Paddy's Day ...
#policingpaddys great respect for the job the guards & emergency services do. The shit they put up with & patience needed. Fair play to them

Inspector Makatarian (or something to that effect) needs to have his own spin off series #policingpaddys

Good to see an honest account of the city centre on Paddys Day. No rose tinted glasses. #policingpaddys

The Gardaí. Bunch of sound lads altogether.
