Keavney seeking assurances on long term Carn Garda Station plans

Donegal Senator Cecilia Keavney says pressure must be kept on the garda authorities to ensure that a new permanent garda station is developed in Carndonagh sooner rather than later. She's due to meet again with Commissioner Fachtna Murphy inm the coming days to discuss the issue.

The station had been prioritised to facilitate a 24 hour station, but was downgraded when a proposed deal on a greenfield site fell through.

Instead, €175,000 is being spent on a temporary pre-fab, which Senator Keavney believes is a waste of money, because for a little more, a permanent site could be bought or rented.
