The detailed allocation of Garda personnel and resources to individual areas is a matter for the Garda authorities. It is not the normal practice for security reasons to give this kind of detail about a particular area. The total for all the stations concerned in each year from 1992 to 1995 is set out as follows. Details for years prior to 1992 are not readily available.
