*Gardaí on duty in Clare. 

KILLALOE AND SCARIFF are to move from the Clare Garda Division as part of new nationwide changes to be rolled out to the operating model of An Garda Síochána.

Plans to amalgamate the Garda Divisions of Clare and Tipperary were first announced as far back as August 2019 but come into effect from Sunday (August 27th). The divisional office will be based at Ennis Garda Station for the merged divisions and will be ran by Chief Superintendent Colm O’Sullivan.

Districts are also to merge into Community Engagement Functional Areas while there will also be the establishment of a Crime Functional Area.

Each Division will comprise of four Functional Areas: Community Engagement, Crime, Performance Assurance and Business Services. The Clare/Tipperary Division has already commenced implementation of the Business Services and Performance Assurance Functional Areas, which has reduced the amount of administrative activities held by operational members. Each Functional Area is led by a Superintendent, with the exception of the Business Services Functional Area which is led by an Assistant Principal.

Scariff and Killaloe will now fall under the East Clare/Tipp North Community Engagement Functional Area alongside Nenagh, Roscrea, Newport, Borrisokane, Toomevara, Cloughjordan, Dolla, Lorrha, Moneygall and Portroe. The Superintendent for this area is two-time All-Ireland winning former Clare hurler, Ollie Baker.

Ennis, Shannon, Tulla, Crusheen, Sixmilebridge, Newmarke-on-Fergus, Kilrush, Kilkee, Kilmihil, Kildysart, Ennistymon, Miltown Malbay, Corofin, Lisdoonvarna and Ballyvaughan all form part of the Community Engagement Clare functional area which will be headed up Superintendent John Ryan.

It means that the old Tulla sub-district is moved into Ennis while the remainder of the old Killaloe District is now in the East Clare/North Tipperary area.
