More than 3,000 gardai are being considered for disciplinary action over youth offender crimes which were not followed up, the Garda commissioner has said.

Single incidents of rape, sexual wrongdoing and child neglect were among 55 of the most serious offences which were not forwarded for possible prosecution.

They were mostly committed between 2010 and 2015 and were part of the Youth Diversion Programme.

Chief superintendents have been asked to initiate disciplinary proceedings but it could take months to resolve, Commissioner Drew Harris said.
