Gardaí from Offaly took part in a recent Sports Day organised by Offaly Sports Partnership as a Sports Inclusion Day for six services providing support to adults with varying support needs in the Midlands.

One of the organisations taking part was RehabCare from Tullamore.

The event took place on July 18 and service users across the midlands, staff and community policing officers from the Laois-Offaly Garda Division took part.

The Garda participation was part of a community policing effort, and members took part in the fun Tug of War contest against all involved for the third year running.
