    it says if someone induces a garda to strike. what if the garda is not induced and comes to the decision of his own free will

    That legislation is to try and keep the GRA from instigating the process I think

    Who would enforce that legislation?

    It's not about the law. That is to prevent organised protest. Individual Gardaí will face disciplinary action the same as if they didn't show up to work on any other day.

    so if 3 or 4 thousand gardai initiated strike action of their own free will they would all have to be individually disciplined. interesting
