Garda Maria Guihen, a hugely popular member of An Garda Siochana, is retiring today, Thursday, June 10, 2021, exactly 40 years after she joined the Force on June 10, 1981.

A well known and recognised member of the Gardai, Maria was synonymous with the big Garda van as she patrolled Carrick-on-Shannon and the villages across South Leitrim, particularly Leitrim Village, Jamestown, Drumsna, Fenagh and Keshcarrigan, keeping a watchful eye out for the people in those communities.

She was the essence of a community garda and will be greatly missed in the area.

We wish Maria well in her retirement.
