Garda Station Open The Emyvale Garda Station has reopened and will be open from 9.00am to 5.00pm on Monday to Friday, which is a welcome issue for the people of North Monaghan. Since its reduction of open hours and the decrease in Garda numbers covering this area there has been an increase in the anxiety and worry experienced by families and more so by those who live alone. North Monaghan is particularly exposed having as it does the border on three sides and the fact that the nearest station in Monaghan is a distance to travel or to await assistance from there in times of trouble and emergency. Emyvale Development Association made representation to the various bodies which might have an input to solving the problem. The new Garda Commissioner, Drew Harris, did state publicly that he wished a number of changes to policing methods and was anxious to get Community Garda visible on the ground. It was with pleasure that I received a call from Minister Heather Humphreys this week informing me of the changes in Emyvale. Not only will the Station be open for business five days of the week but there have been two extra Gardai stationed in the Emyvale area. The Station was open this am and we are confident that this will all bring some comfort to those who were living in fear and dread. It also means that when one requires the signature of a Garda it will be much easier than having to go to the Monaghan station. One of the reasons we put forward for the need for a Garda presence in the Village was to try to slow the traffic down and make it easier for people to cross the street. This means that it is likely that Speed Checks will appear on Main Street in the coming days and weeks and a check to ensure that traffic does stop when the Pedestrian Lights are Red for vehicles. So be warned – slow down and keep below the speed limit going through Emyvale. We are hopeful that these changes will improve life for the people who live in the area and who come to the village to shop or
