As regards an article in the Irish Examiner about the condition of Macroom garda station, during my late husband’s service in the Garda Siochana, I lived in the married quarters of two garda stations, for a total of ten years.
The last one was freezing, sodden with damp, there was no felt under the roof tiles and, as for the Office of Public Works (OPW), I won’t go there.
Our solution was to build our own house, in 1975, 40 years ago. I am not one bit surprised that there are still garda stations that are unfit for purpose, such is the snail’s pace at which the OPW seem to operate.
