I am informed by the Garda authorities that additional temporary accommodation provided at Carlow Garda Station in March this year has served to ease the accommodation pressures at the Station.

The programme of replacement and refurbishment of Garda accommodation around the country is based on agreed priorities established by An Garda Síochána. The future accommodation needs of Carlow Garda Station is being considered in this context and in light of available resources.
