Bagenalstown Fire Station

A meeting is to be sought with National Directorate for Fire and Emergency Services over the future of Bagenalstown Fire Station following a structural report on the current condition of the facility. 

A site survey discovered "many structural deficiencies" within the building.

The €450,000 refurbishment previously granted "may not fully cover the extent of the works required to ensure the structural integrity of the building", Carlow County Council have stated. 

The meeting will discuss whether the optimum course of action is the refurbishment of the exisiting station or a new build on another site.
