Government open to selling closed Donegal garda stations

It has emerged that Culdaff and Dunkineely garda stations in Donegal could be sold off.

The two stations were of 39 across the country which will close as part of a cost cutting exercise.

Now Minister of State Brian O'Shea has proposed a new scheme that could see the stations sold to individual gardaí or used for community activities.

Deputy O'Shea said that where people or local communities see a possible use for these stations that are to be closed the government is open to that.

He added that some of the stations already had living quarters attached, a fact that might make them attractive to individual buyers.
