The Irish Muslim Council — Comhairle Mhoslamach na hÉireann is delighted to welcome Garda Hayden McGurk of Blanchardstown Garda Station on a Community Placement with our team. Garda McGurk will spend a few hours a week over the next few months volunteering with the IMC team to deliver projects to promote diversity, equality and inclusion in West Dublin – beginning with this year’s Eid at Croke Park event.
“When I joined Blanchardstown Garda Station in the summer of 2021, I quickly learnt that the the communities I was working with represented people of many different nationalities, faiths and cultural backgrounds. I wanted to work with the Irish Muslim Council as they represent the Muslim communities and also have a far reaching remit to connect with the wider communities that is inclusive of everyone.
I hope when I have completed my current project with IMC, I will have further developed my understanding, knowledge and needs of the communities I am serving, and I know this will compliment my policing career going forward.”Garda Hayden McGurk
