Deputy Noel J. Coonan asked the Minister for Justice, Equality and Law Reform the number of Garda stations in County Tipperary; if there is a full time Garda presence in each; and if he will make a statement on the matter. [32225/07]

  Deputy Brian Lenihan: I propose to take Questions Nos. 536 and 537 together.

I am informed by the Garda authorities that there are 46 Garda Stations in the Tipperary Division. Not all of these stations are open on a full-time basis. The Divisional Headquarters, all District Headquarters and Roscrea Garda Station are open on a 24 hour basis. I am further informed by the Garda authorities that the specific station to which the Deputy refers is open on a part-time basis and is staffed during those hours by one Garda.
