As the Deputy will appreciate, the Garda Commissioner has responsibility to manage and control generally the administration and business of An Garda Síochána, including by arranging for the recruitment, training and appointment of its members.
The Commissioner has indicated that there will be three attestations in 2019, most likely in March, June and November, though these dates are provisional.
