Cork North West TD, Michael Creed welcomed his colleague the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald TD, to Macroom on Saturday (22nd November) to discuss the urgent need for a new Garda station in the town. Commenting on the meeting Deputy Creed said:
“I was pleased to get the opportunity to show the Minister first- hand the poor facilities Gardaí are working with in the Macroom station, in order to underline the urgent need for development of the proposed new Station in the town. Fortunately, the purchase of a site for a new station, has reached the conclusion phase. In the pursuit of capital funding to take the project to construction phase, the opportunity to bring the Minister to Macroom to engage with Garda representatives in the area was most welcome. I am committed to ensuring that this matter is a priority issue for Minister Fitzgerald for the remainder of her term in office”.
