248. Deputy Jim O'Callaghan asked the Minister for Justice and Equality the opening hours of Garda stations (details supplied) in County Louth; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [6766/18]


Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Charles Flanagan): The Deputy will appreciate, decisions in relation to the provision and allocation of Garda resources, including the opening times of Garda stations, are a matter for the Garda Commissioner and I, as Minister, have no direct role in the matter.
I have asked the Garda authorities for the specific information requested and when it is to hand I will inform the Deputy accordingly.
