O’REILLY CALLS ON MINISTER TO PRIORITISE NEW GARDA STATION FOR BAILIEBOROUGH

Fine Gael TD for Cavan and Monaghan, Deputy Joe O’Reilly, has called on the Minister for Justice, Frances Fitzgerald TD, to prioritise the construction of a new Garda Station for the town of Bailieborough.

‘The current Garda Station, in Barrack Street, has fallen into ill repair and is unable to manage with an increasing volume of work. Since I was elected to the Dáil in 2011, I have missed no opportunity to make the case for a new station. I was in contact directly, with the then Minister, Alan Shatter TD, on a number of occasions and I have met the present Minister, Frances Fitzgerald TD, on the issue a number of times also’, explained Deputy O’Reilly.

‘I have conveyed the gravity of the situation to her and have asked her to prioritise the construction of a new Station for Bailieborough. The successful completion of a new Garda Station for Bailieborough is a top priority with me and will remain so until success is achieved’ concluded Deputy O’Reilly.
