Ceisteanna Eile - Other Questions
Office of Public Works Properties
The Deputy referred to the closure of the old Garda station. I was there for the opening of the new Garda station. It was a proud day for Wexford and a proud day for the Government, which supplied the resources for a new state-of-the-art station. I have been working on the issue of the old Garda station. Deputy Howlin and others have approached me about this matter. We have sought alternative uses for this accommodation. We have not fallen behind. We are very active in trying to get someone into the station. Potential users have looked at the station and have found it does not meet their requirements. We will continue until we find someone who will make use of it. At this time, a body is interested in the building. We are working closely with it to work out a deal that suits its requirements. If we can do so, it will be good news for that part of Wexford.
