THE ongoing campaign to halt the closure of the Stepaside Garda Station has stepped up a gear this week ahead of a rally due to take place on Sunday, February 3.
Local residents and business people are calling on the Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter, to reverse his decision to close the station and are consolidating their efforts to ensure that the station remains open to serve the local community.
A spokesman for the campaign said: “If the station closes, the nearest 24-hour Garda station will be in Wicklow – 30 miles away – as no other station between Tallaght and Dun Laoghaire is open after 9pm.”
The rally is set to take place at the Garda station in Stepaside from 2pm this Sunday.
