Serious concern about low garda numbers at Castlerea station

The Garda Representative Association is expressing serious concern about low numbers at Castlerea garda station in Co Roscommon.

Garda Tom Kennedy who’s the GRA representative for Roscommon/Longford says numbers at Castlerea have reduced dramatically over the past year and there is real concern for safety of both the gardai and the wider public.

Castlerea garda station is designated as an area headquarters and services an area the size of Longford county.
