A FEMALE GARDA who was threatened with dismissal from An Garda Síochana, for having pre-marital sex with another recruit garda, and for having given birth to a baby outside wedlock has told her story publicly for the first time in thirty-four years.

In February 1985, the story of an unnamed female garda made headlines as she was being threatened with dismissal from An Garda Síochana, for having pre-marital sex with another recruit garda, and for having given birth to a baby outside wedlock.

Majella Moynihan, who was 22-years-old at the time, was the garda at the centre of the case. She is now telling her story for the first time on RTÉ Radio 1′s Documentary on One.

So, when you have sex outside of marriage, you are creating that strong bond with the person, whether in real life or on a screen or in a fantasy. Now let’s say that you do get married at some point. Numerous studies show that people who have premarital sex are more prone to divorce.

Premarital sex compared to premarital sex that led to out of wedlock pregnancy should be handled consistently Otherwise they are disciplining Maddie for having a child, not for having premarital sex . Again, if an out of wedlock pregnancy is the church’s only time of addressing sex outside of

In 1983, before Majella went to the Garda Training College, in Templemore, County Tipperary she met a fellow garda recruit at the Garda Club.

“He went down to Templemore in 1982, and then I ended up down in Templemore myself in April of ‘83 and we started up the relationship again.  At weekends, I’d come to Dublin and he’d go to his home.

“And then in August I met him, I know he came to my father’s house, and that was the weekend that I conceived. And you might say how did you know. I knew straight away that I had conceived. And as I was still in Templemore at that stage and I had to go back to Templemore and I had an inkling that I was pregnant, I had an extremely strong inkling that I was pregnant,” Majella said.

While Majella suspected her pregnancy would create difficulties for her, she was at that point unaware that news of her pregnancy had spread through garda ranks. It had gone as far as the Garda Commissioners Office and the most serious disciplinary charges were being planned against her.

With premarital sex the rule, rather than the exception, an out -of- wedlock childbirth gradually ceased to be a sign that society’s sexual taboos had been violated. The reduction in stigma also helps explain why women who would once have put their baby up for adoption chose to keep it instead.

On the flip side , having sex is no guarantee that the deep emotional intimacy that everyone longs for Some experts even report that premarital sex short circuits the emotional bonding process. For example, the man who hasn't ever seen or driven more than one car doesn't know what other cars

As the result of an internal garda investigation for breach of discipline, Majella was asked to provide a full statement regarding her relationship with the recruit garda, the times she had sexual intercourse with him, her pregnancy, the birth of their baby and her intention to have the baby adopted

Majella was charged with two counts under the 1971 Garda Síochána Regulations, ‘Conduct prejudicial to discipline or likely to bring discredit on the Force’, which were described in her charge sheet as:

1. “… you, being an unmarried female member of An Garda Síochána, did associate on terms of intimacy and undue familiarity with one, Recruit Garda [name redacted], an unmarried male member of An Garda Síochána […] and during such period of association you had sexual intercourse with said Recruit Garda […] as a result of which you became pregnant and gave birth to a male child at Galway Regional Hospital, Galway, County Galway on or about 31st May, 1984.”2. “… that you being a female member of An Garda Síochána stationed at Store Street Garda Station, Dublin, did on or about the 31st of May, 1984, give birth to a child outside wedlock at Galway Regional Hospital, Galway, Co. Galway.

Having children outside wedlock "was regarded as heinous". Even now it is stigmatised: Xiao, then living in Shenzhen, told neighbours she was married and her husband was travelling. Meanwhile, the widespread availability of abortion allows women to end unwanted pregnancies with relative ease.

The Archbishop of Dublin intervened shortly after, advising the Garda Commissioner at the time that if Majella was convicted, it would encourage other female gardaí to go to the UK for abortions.

Majella was made aware that, without this intervention, she would have been sacked.

Directly after his birth, Majella’s son was initially placed in foster care before being legally adopted in December 1984. In April 1985, Majella was then summoned to a sworn hearing on the conduct of the Recruit Garda, who was the father of her child.

Here she had to testify about her sexual relationship with him, and her sexual history. The father of her child was fined £90 for his conduct.

Traumatised by the loss of her child and by the treatment she had received within the Force, Majella remained a member of An Garda Síochána for a total of fifteen years but, in 1998, eventually sought early retirement.
