CLARE Chief Superintendent John Kerin has confirmed that five new Gardaí will be allocated to the county next month.

“While I have yet to be told where they are being allocated to, I am confident some will go to Kilrush, as well as to Ennis,” Chief Supt Kerin said.

Since training re-commenced for Gardaí, 25 have been allocated to Clare and all have been stationed in Ennis.

Up to recently, Ennis was the only station in the county where trainee Gardaí could be posted, but Kilrush has recently been granted the same status.

This means that when probationer Gardaí are being allocated to Clare in future, some will go to Ennis and some will go to Kilrush.

“Any additional Gardaí being allocated to a community will benefit it but even from a Garda perspective we find that young Gardaí bring youthful enthusiasm and vitality.

“Those assigned as Tutor Gardaí take a personal interest in the career development of probationer Gardaí, as do their supervising sergeants,” Chief Supt Kerin added.

During 2017, Co Clare had a net gain of 17 Gardaí coming in to the Clare Division when retirements, transfers out of the divisions and resignations were taken into consideration.

“As the numbers coming into the force increase I am confident Clare will be allocated additional Gardaí,” Chief Supt Kerin said.
