I welcome the announcement last week of the sanctioning of a further 250 new Garda recruits by Minister Brendan Howlin.
A total of 550 Gardaí will have been recruited by this Government between September 2014 and 2015. This is in addition to the €27.5 million invested in new Garda vehicles between 2012 and 2014, marking a massive increase on the €4.8 million provided for in Budgets 2009-2011.
The latest 370 new Garda vehicles have come on stream since the start of this year. This announcement also comes as extremely positive news for the town of Templemore.
