Major Campaign to stop Gorey Gárda Station being downgraded

A major campaign is underway to stop Gorey Garda Station from being downgraded.

A number of meetings have been held, a committee has been set up and there will be a public meeting for everyone in Gorey district, which takes in our area of Askamore / Kilrush. This is a single focus group – their only purpose is to stop the station being downgraded and already the committee has compiled some very interesting and disturbing statistics, which are attached to this post.

The public meeting takes place in the Ashdown Park Hotel next Monday night, February 25th @ 8 pm and it is hoped that there will be a large representation from all the Gorey Garda district area.
