Gardaí and the people of Bailieborough District left in the dark for 15 months

Gardaí and the people of Bailieborough District have been left in the dark for 15 months.

That’s according to Fianna Fail TD Niamh Smyth who says she is ‘astonished’ by the Government’s inaction on a new Garda Station for the town.

Funding was approved for a new Garda regional headquarters for Bailieborough in October of 2015.

Deputy Smyth says she has been getting the same response from Minister Frances Fitzgerald since July last year that a site has been chosen but it’s progressing through legal matters.

She has described it as an “ongoing saga”.
