That's a strange article. The headline New intelligence unit to assess threats to State is barely mentioned as an aside within the article.

The Future of Policing in Ireland wrote:
The nature of the threat to national security has changed greatly in recent years,
to include new forms of international terrorism, radicalisation of individuals, and
cyber threats to critical national infrastructure. An Garda Síochána should retain its
responsibilities for security operations, including intelligence gathering, investigations,
interceptions and arrests. The internal security and intelligence capacity within An
Garda Síochána should be appropriately resourced and reinforced with additional
specialist skills. However, the national security function should not be lodged entirely
within the police organisation
and it is now necessary to augment An Garda Síochána’s
responsibility for security operations. There should be a more structured multi-agency
approach to security, and a Strategic Threat Analysis Centre, based in the Department
of the Taoiseach and headed by a National Security Coordinator. The office should
bring together all sources of security intelligence and information – from An Garda
Síochána, the Department of Justice and Equality, the National Cyber Security Centre,
the Defence Forces, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and any other sources
– to develop and provide briefings and advice to the Taoiseach on all matters of national
security. The Coordinator should be responsible for synchronising national security
strategy.

It looks like an unfortunate fudge where the compromise is worse than either of the options.

A committee doesn't really take the kind of executive decisions that you need an intelligence agency to carry out.

Unlikely that a generalist civil servant in DoT would have the savvy or experience to make these kind of calls.

The omni-shambles continues

3,500 gardai investigated as youth crime scandal exposed
https://www.independent.ie/irish-news/3 ... 23963.html
Quote:
Garda Commissioner Drew Harris has called the failure to prosecute 3,000 youth offenders a "humiliating professional failure" for the force.
He also apologised to all those who were victims of crimes committed by those who were never prosecuted.
An internal report into the force's youth referral scheme found that 7,894 cases where youths were deemed not to be suitable for the diversion programme were not appropriately dealt with over a seven-year period.
About a quarter of the force's officers were involved in the cases, it revealed.
"It's profoundly humiliating for us as an organisation," Mr Harris said yesterday.
One incident of rape, one case of child neglect and one incident of a sexual offence were among those cases not properly progressed.
The other crimes included public order 23pc, theft 19pc, traffic 14pc, and criminal damage 11pc.
There were 2,492 individual personal victims and 988 individual business victims of these crimes, which took place between 2010 and 2017.

The really shocking and worrying thing about all of that and the rest previouslly is that no-one is shocked or suprised, not really.

AGS is a bit like a religious order.

Taking on simple country fellas at a very early point in their lives, giving them a comfortable living, but no exposure to a culture or way of doing things outside their own. Secrecy paramount, and promotion largely on seniority.

And like the religious orders when the abuse scandals hit in the 90s, complete inability to understand what they might have been doing wrong, never mind reform, and complete car crash stuff on public relations.
