A SENIOR garda is being investigated for allegedly stepping in to make sure GAA players and officials weren’t prosecuted.
Limerick GAA top brass will meet on Tuesday night after raids on homes and a Garda station in the county.
Cops from the National Bureau of Criminal Investigation last week seized phones from gardai, GAA players and officials.
And 15 gardai were quizzed about summonses they may not have proceeded with.
It is alleged road traffic offences, criminal damage and a drink-driving related matter were either abandoned or not followed up on properly.
Sources close to the Limerick County Board said they were “shocked”.
Three gardai have been suspended as part of the wider probe, which it’s understood arose as the NBCI looked at whether secret policing information was being leaked to crime gangs.
A source said: “There’s a full County Board meeting involving all of the clubs on Tuesday night.
“There will be a management meeting on beforehand, and without a doubt this will be raised.
“There will be an obligation on the top table to make some kind of a statement on it, to bring clarity. Everyone is in shock.”
