A trainee garda has resigned from the Garda Training College in Templemore, following an incident on Wednesday night relating to suspected drink driving.

The trainee was among the latest intake of student gardaí and only entered the college in the summer.

Gardaí in Tipperary are investigating an incident in which a car collided on the outskirts of Templemore on Wednesday night. It’s understood the same car may also have collided with other parked cars in the garda college afterwards.

The suspect is believed to have been drinking in a local bar near the college on Wednesday night before driving the vehicle.

Gardaí have confirmed they are investigating a road traffic incident which occurred on Wednesday 4th September. They also confirmed that a trainee member of An Garda Síochána has resigned later this afternoon.
