Dromod Garda station achieved top price in Ireland of any station in 2016

The former Garda station in Dromod which sold for €142,000 achieved the highest price of stations sold by the State last year.

New figures show it was one of eleven stations around the country sold off by the Commissioners of Public Works in 2016.

The original asking price for the Dromod property was €90,000 but it eventually went for €142,000.

Balllyfarnon in Co. Roscommon achieved a price of €40,000 when it came to the market last year.

The sale in Dromod brings to three the number of stations sold off in Leitrim since 2014. The station in Cloone was sold for €50,000 in 2014 and the one in Kiltyclogher went in 2015 for €58,000.
