Today, Wednesday, is the date when the country’s longest serving member of An Garda Síochána, Manorhamilton Garda Station’s highly popular Sergeant Robert Conroy retires from the force after 41 and a half years of service.

Tributes were paid to Sgt Conroy at this morning's sitting of Manorhamilton District Court.
