Complaints lodged with GSOC over Jerusalema video

The Garda watchdog has received a number of complaints over the Jerusalema video that went viral last week.

The force were challenged by the Swiss police to take part in the online challenge which saw members do a coordinated dance in various locations around the country.

According to the Irish Daily Star, GSOC has received around half a dozen complaints about the video – despite the ombudsman tweeting that it would not be taking complaints seriously.

Meanwhile, Irish Coast Guard volunteers have been banned from taking part on the dance challenge by Coast Guard management over safety concerns.
