The Morris Report, published in the summer of 2004, identified widespread and significant corruption and malpractice among members of the Garda Siochana in Co. Donegal. It was one of the most trenchant and unambiguous tribunal reports of modern times. Tribunal. In this book, written by her sister, her story is told. Hers was a classic case of a vulnerable young woman, first putting herself into self-glamorising situations, but later finding herself cynically and cruelly exploited by bullies. apparent information to the guards was anything other than bizarre. But the real scandal developed when Adrienne was then used as part of an elaborate scheme to win promotion for two guards, in particular, by the planting of fake and false evidence relating to IRA terrorism. This is not just one woman's story of weakness and exploitation. It is also a searing insight into a Garda culture that requires urgent remedial action.
