News has emerged that the Garda Station in the Wexford district village of Glynn is to re-open. The station which was closed approximately 10 years ago, will now be assigned 2 Gardai from the Wexford Garda Division.
County Councillor and parishioner Garry Laffan, who was first elected to Wexford County Council in the 2019 local elections, has welcomed news of this development:
“This is great news for Glynn and its surrounding areas. For the last number of years there has been no operational Garda Station between Clonroche and Wexford Town. It is very welcome to see a renewed Garda presence in Glynn and the surrounding areas.
Laffan also gives great praise to the efforts of Superintendent Jim Doyle and the work of the Joint Policing Committee –
“As a member of the Joint Policing Committee, I have discussed the issue of Glynn Garda station many times with Wexford Superintendent Jim Doyle, who has worked hard to help facilitate the re-opening of the station. I am delighted to hear it will be fully active again very soon”
The station is situated in the village of Glynn, between St Lawrence’s Church and Glynn National School.
