NEWLY REFURBISHED GARDA STATIONS COULD BE ON LIST TO CLOSE

first_imgA number of Garda stations across Donegal which have been renovated in the past couple of years could be on the list of 14 stations to close due to cutbacks, Donegaldaily.com has learned.Tens of thousands of euro has been spent bringing the Garda barracks up to an acceptable standard.However that money could have been spent in vain following the news that the stations could be on the list for closure. The stations include both Clonmany and Carndonagh which underwent extensive renovation in 2009 and last year.Chief Superintendent Terry McGinn has admitted that up to 14 stations could close in the coming months across Donegal.There are concerns that as many as 29 stations could be affected in some way.Former councillor and community campaigner PJ Blake says he has it on very good information that some renovated stations are on the list to shut their doors for good. “Not only is it bad enough that these stations are earmarked for closure but thousands has been spent renovating them in the past couple of years.“Somebody thought it was a good idea to invest in out Gardai and now they have decided overnight that we don’t need them.“The Gardai in Donegal are under enough pressure without these cuts and we must all stand together to fight them,” he fumed.NEWLY REFURBISHED GARDA STATIONS COULD BE ON LIST TO CLOSE was last modified: November 13th, 2011 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:cutbacksGARDA STATIONSlast_img
