With less than one week until Boyle Garda Station looses it’s 24 hour opening status, representatives from the Chamber of Commerce will travel to Castlerea on Tuesday morning to meet Superintendent Aidan Foley.
The delegation will outline the concerns of the business community if the station operates on reduced hours.
Following a request from this website, Boyle Chamber of Commerce issued a statement last week in relation to the controversial issue.
“Boyle Chamber of Commerce, together with the community of Boyle, have been alarmed to learn in recent days of a proposal to substantially reduce the opening hours at our Garda Station.
We are extremely concerned at the adverse impact this proposal will have on policing in the town of Boyle and surrounding area.
As a result, and in addition to lobbying our public representatives at both local and national level to this, we have also raised our concerns with the Superintendent directly.
He has agreed to meet with us to discuss the matter further.”
