Hundreds of locals made their way to Tullamore Garda Station on Saturday as gardaí there held an Open Day.

Adults and children alike learned about the work of a garda, including the various units and the day-to-day operations of a local garda station.

The dog unit, armed unit and mounted unit were among those to give demonstrations.

Those attending were able to sit in a garda car and stand in a cell inside the station - hopefully for the first and last time - during the informative event.
