According to the audio commentary, the uniform that Sergeant Boyle puts on for the movie's end is not a ceremonial dress uniform, but an older Garda uniform that was retired in the 1980s. This is however incorrect, the tunic and old style hat and trousers were removed from front-line operational use in the early 1990s and replaced with just a shirt and jacket. It is still issued and used for certain ceremonial occasions such as graduation ceremonies. See more
