Acquisition process of site for new Bailieborough Garda station in final stages

I am very pleased with confirmation from the Minister of State in the Department of Finance, Eoghan Murphy TD, that legalities regarding the acquisition of the new site for Bailieborough Garda station are at their final stage.


“I am pleased with confirmation, following my on-going discussions with Minister Eoghan Murphy, that the legalities relating to the acquisition of the new site for Bailieborough Garda station are in the final stage. The development of the new regional Garda headquarters in Bailieborough is vital for our local community, and for the entire Garda district.


“Furthermore, Minister Murphy has provided confirmation that the design of the new station for Bailieborough has been agreed with An Garda Siochána. It is positive that this agreement is already in place, and I hope this will ensure there are no unnecessary delays in the planning and construction process once the site acquisition process is completed.


“The development of the new regional Garda headquarters building in Bailieborough is vital in terms of ensuring the hard-working men and women of An Garda Síochána are provided with the necessary infrastructure and resources to support them in the work they do on behalf of every local resident on a daily basis.


“While the site for the new station cannot be officially confirmed until the acquisition process has been officially concluded, I have been assured that this will be completed shortly.


“The building project for the new station in Bailieborough will, itself, create significant employment and provide a major boost to our local economy. Once this new station is completed and operational, it will assist in helping people in Bailieborough, and across the district, feel safer in our community, and on our local streets.


“I will continue to actively engage with Minister Eoghan Murphy to work to ensure this vital piece of infrastructure is delivered for Bailieborough without any further unnecessary delays.”
