Review on a number of empty garda stations in the county is ongoing

A review on a number of empty garda stations in the county is ongoing.

The Office of Public Works, which owns a number of garda stations, says the Policing Authority is carrying out a review on four stations in Kerry.

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.

A review being carried out by the Policing Authority has not yet concluded, and the OPW does not know when the review will be finalised.
