Renewed questions as site bought three years ago for new Sligo Garda station still lies idle

There are renewed calls for an explanation to be given to the people of Sligo in relation to what is happening to land on the outskirts of Sligo town that was bought for a new garda station.

Nothing has since happened in relation to the provision of the new garda station while refurbishments have taken place at the current station in Sligo.

Sligo Fine Gael Councillor Thomas Walsh says he will now call on Sligo County Council to support a motion asking the minister for Public Expenditure and Reform, and the minister of state with responsibility for the Office of Public Works to outline what are the plans for the lands at Caltragh.

Cllr Walsh says answers are now needed.
