Written answers (Question to Justice)

The programme of replacement and refurbishment of Garda stations is based on accommodation priorities which are established by An Garda Síochána. The programme is advanced in close co-operation with the Office of Public Works, which has responsibility for the provision and maintenance of Garda accommodation. I have been advised by the Garda authorities that the purchase of a premises for a new Garda station for Glanmire is currently the subject of legal proceedings. Accordingly, I am not in a position to provide any further information in relation to this matter.
