Written answers (Question to Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform)

I have been informed by the Garda authorities that gardaí in the Skerries area are usually trained in the use of firearms in the Gormanstown army range. If this facility is not available, training is provided at the Garda Headquarters in the Phoenix Park or in other locations in the Leinster area.
