A senior Garda has suggested they could look at re-opening all rural garda stations closed during the recession.
Stations in Kill, Ballymore Eustace and Ballitore were among over 130 closed, nationwide
It's already been decided to re-open six, including that in Donard.
Assistant Commissioner John O'Driscoll suggests more could be opened as resources become available.
He says they need to look at areas with a growing population that may need more policing.
