She commented, “Bailieborough needs a Garda Station. This is a project I have been working on since being elected to Dáil Éireann with successive Ministers. I am delighted that my Party colleague, Minister McGrath, has confirmed to me that tender documentation will issue in October.  

“I understand the contract for the build will be issued before the end of this year, followed by the construction process which is expected to take 18 months.  

“I will continue to work my Party colleagues in Government to ensure this project progresses swiftly and a new, modern Garda Station is provided for the town,” concluded Deputy Smyth.
