Councillor urges local communities to get out in force to meet Gardaí at ‘meet & greet’ engagement events

A Ballinasloe Municipal District councillor is urging people in local communities in East Galway to attend community engagement events with Gardaí in various locations this week. Councillor Aisling Dolan, who is the Fine Gael candidate for Roscommon-Galway, says Friday 31st January 2020, An Garda Síochána are getting involved in a ‘meet and greet’ opportunity at over 300 venues across the country including several in North and East Galway. Local Gardaí, IFA branch representatives and representatives from community groups involved in the National Rural Safety Forum will engage with local communities.

 

The events will give people an opportunity to get to know local Gardaí and also express any concerns they might have about local policing.

 

The East Galway meet & greet events on Friday will take place at –

Greenes, Ahascragh from 11a.m to 12noon

Mees, Ballymoe from 9a.m to 10a.m

Co-Op, Clonberne from 12noon to 1p.m

Howleys, Dunmore from 10.30a.m to 11.30a.m

Potters, Glenamaddy from 2p.m to 3p.m

Dowds, Glinsk from 10.30a.m to 11.30a.m

Hickeys, Kilconnell from 11a.m to 1p.m

Maddens, Lerhin from 2p.m to 3p.m

Arrabawn, Mountbellew from 11a.m to 12noon

Ganleys, Mountbellew from 12.30p.m to 1.30p.m

Smyths, Williamstown from 12noon to 1p.m

 

“This is an important opportunity for local people to meet local Gardaí in person and explain to them what concerns we have about security and policing in rural areas in particular. I welcome this initiative by An Garda Siochana to get out and about and hear the concerns of communities on the ground and hopefully it will feed into a policy that provides a more visible presence of Gardaí locally and peace of mind for communities,” says Councillor Aisling Dolan.
