A Sligo-Leitrim TD has expressed his anger and disappointment about the decision not to proceed with the planned new Regional Headquarters for Sligo Garda Station.
Fine Gael TD Frank Feighan was shocked by the decision, considering the town’s large population and the ongoing difficulty with drugs gangs and criminality across the region.
The new station in Sligo was to form part of a three station PPP construction project as part of the 2016-2021 Justice Capital Plan, along with Macroom and Clonmel.
The new modern headquarters for Sligo was to replace the old Garda Station in Sligo town.
Deputy Feighan says he hopes to meet with the Garda Commissioner and with local Garda management to get their views on the issue.
