The location of the Headquarters of the new garda division that will stretch across counties Mayo, Roscommon and Longford is not yet known, but is likely to be announced within a week or so.
It could be located in Castlebar, Roscommon or Longford.
However, the new larger garda region of the Northwest, operational since Monday, is headquartered in Sligo.
These changes in the operation and management of the gardai nationally were announced earlier this week by Commissioner Drew Harris and will be implemented in full over a three year period.
The new larger geographical areas in the plan have caused garda union representatives to express opposition and concern to the changes.
Garda districts have become redundant in the new system and the former Mayo Garda District is now part of the larger Mayo, Roscommon, Longford division.
However, the Mayo district was part of the pilot group introducing the new measures, and has been working under the new system locally since February of this year.
