SIGNIFICANT progress is set to be made within weeks on the transfer of ownership of the old Garda Station in Lissycasey, which will help with the process of it being brought into community use.
In a statement Clare TD Joe Carey said, “Work has been ongoing for some time to bring the former Garda Station in Lissycasey back into use for community purposes.
“This transfer has been stalled due to legal issues but significant progress has now been made. Minister Patrick O’Donovan has confirmed to me that he anticipates that these legal issues will be resolved in full this month.
“On conclusion of these legal matters, the Minister advises me a new lease can then be drawn-up between the OPW and Clare County Council who will co-ordinate its use thereby enabling local community groups in Lissycasey to avail of the premises.
“This is really positive news for the community of Lissycasey and I want to express my thanks to Minister Patrick O’Donovan for his engagement and work in advancing a solution to this matter.”
