Police culture, Gender and Crime in the Irish Free State.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Sexual crime in the Irish Free State was more than an issue of law, it carried ideological importance in a nation that legitimized itself as a beacon of Celtic Catholicism whilst struggling to maintain credibility in a contested post-colonial landscape. The nation’s police force, An Garda Síochána, had a central role in preserving the nation’s reputation for piety. This chapter explores the views of two of An Garda Síochána’s most senior officers regarding female sexuality and sexual crime; features that were to influence the level of protection and justice Ireland’s women and children were afforded under law.
