Swinford Garda Station should be reinstated as a District HQ, says Sinn Fein Councillor

The downgraded Garda Station in Swinford needs to be reinstated as a District Headquarters.

That’s according to local Sinn Fein Councillor Gerry Murray, who raised the matter at this week’s monthly meeting of Mayo County Council.

Councillor Murray claims there has been a significant increase in crime figures in Swinford and the adjoining towns and villages since the station was downgraded.

The Sinn Fein Councillor says reinstating Swinford station as a District headquarters would have to be approved by Government and he hopes it’s on the table as part of the Confidence and Supply agreement between FG and Fianna Fail.
