Does that mean the PSNI has better trained officers?

Dunno, they maybe have their own specialties. From what I understand the PSNI spend more time on human rights and physical fitness. The Garda might spend more time on learning how to solve crime - no bad thing in a police officer.

Bud Wiser:
Ring Pillar in Fitzgibbon Street and ask him to fix you up. You will be able to get in free to all the games in Croker and you might even get to manage the Dubs.  If you are only into Club Football and like a bit of a shindig every weekend then Laois club football is for you in which case ring Darren Rooney.  If hurling is your only man then Eddie (Speedy) Brennan from the Cat's is in Portlaoise and he might get you fixed up in Kilkenny.  Fail to live up to the Cat's standards and you are on your way to the Innishowen Peninsula without as much as a warning so that one may not be a good option.

Best of luck.

I'd say given NI's history, and the current immigration, an emphasis on Human Rights is pretty appropriate.

Funny that you mention physical finess - have you ever seen a fat PSNI officer? Some of the Gardai are a disgrace - does physical fitness cease to become an issue once you qualify? Surely it should be as much part of a job appraisal as any other competence?
