Can you also brief us of the efforts by Sikhs of Ireland to resolve the issue. Please provide us links to the correspondence or publish it here.

Listen, they are called 'uniform' for a reason - because everyone wears the same one. When in Rome do as the Romans.

If this chap wants to join the Gardai he has to abide by their rules, not vice versa. If he is not happy with the uniform or if it goes against the rules of his religion the obvious solution is to not join.

If you are looking to give the ultra right-wing anti-immigration lobby a reason to complain about immigration to this country you are giving them very good reason. Please don't encourage them.
