On Thursday 2nd December on the roof top garden of Kevin Street Garda Station a presentation was made by the Alice Leahy Trust to Garda Damien McCarthy and Garda Alan O’Dowd in recognition of their amazing work in the repatriation of Romi Ramtohul back to his home country of Mauritius. The two unique bronze presentations were very generously given to us by artist Jarlath Daly, Sculptor of the All Stars, IFTAS and many other celebrated award schemes. Jarlath is known as Sculptor to the Stars. When making the presentation on behalf of the Alice Leahy Trust Alice Leahy said “Garda Damien McCarthy and Garda Alan O’Dowd now join this stellar collection as Humanitarian All Stars”. The four doves represent: hope; trust; inspiration and gratitude.
