Clonark Garda Station waiting to see the light – Naughten

In News, Older People, South Roscommon by Denis Naughten

Local TD, Denis Naughten has been informed by the OPW that Clonark Garda Station will be made available to the Garda authorities as soon as the electricity has been connected, later this month.

The plan was that the renovated Garda Station would be available to An Garda Síochána by mid October 2011, but this was now been delayed due to the lack of an ESB connection.

This will increase the Garda presence in the area, something that will be welcomed by those who are elderly and vulnerable in the community,” stated Denis Naughten
