Eight Unused Garda Stations Go Under The Hammer

Eight former garda stations are going under the hammer at a public auction in Dublin.

It is understood that there has been strong interest in the building, some of which were only vacated recently, with others sitting unused for decades.

The stations are located in counties Galway, Cork, Longford, Leitrim, Tipperary and Wexford.

The auction marks the start of a process announced last year by the Office of Public Works, which will see a total of 40 unoccupied stations put up for sale.
