No plans to reopen garda stations in Kerry which were closed following economic downturn

There are no plans to reopen garda stations in Kerry which were closed following the economic downturn.

12 stations in Kerry were closed under the Garda District and Station Rationalisation Programme in 2012 and 2013.

Three of the closed stations were sold, while nine remained in State ownership.


Four of the stations, Ballylongford, Brosna, Camp and Moyvane, were retained by the State for consideration of alternative use, pending the outcome of a review of closed Garda stations.

Chief Superintendent of the Kerry Garda Division, Eileen Foster, says there are no plans currently to reopen any closed garda station.
