St Brigid’s club makes a visit to the Garda Sta­tion

Wexford People - - NEWS - By BREN­DAN KEANE

MEM­BERS of St Brigid’s Club and Day Care Cen­tre made the rel­a­tively short trip to Wex­ford Garda Sta­tion for an out­ing that saw them treated to a tour of the fa­cil­ity.

The mem­bers were greeted by se­nior of­fi­cers in the sta­tion in­clud­ing Chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Pa­trick McMe­namin and Garda Joe Kelly.

Hav­ing wel­comed them to the fa­cil­ity the Gar­dai then acted as guides while the vis­i­tors viewed the in­te­rior of the build­ing.

Im­pressed by what they saw they com­pli­mented Chief Supt McMe­namin on the build­ing and they also ex­pressed thanks for be­ing given the op­por­tu­nity to visit the sta­tion which is one of the finest in the coun­try.

A spokesper­son for St Brigid’s said the event was or­gan­ised as one of the out­ings for the mem­bers and it was the first time that the ma­jor­ity of the vis­i­tors had been in­side the new state-of-the-art build­ing.

They were shown around the fa­cil­ity while also be­ing told about the how polic­ing busi­ness has been made eas­ier since the force moved from its old build­ing.

The vis­i­tors were also treated to some light re­fresh­ments while in the sta­tion and thor­oughly en­joyed their visit.

The St Brigid’s cen­tre is lo­cated close to where the old Garda Sta­tion was on Roche’s Road so it was good for the mem­bers to see first-hand where there their for­mer near-neigh­bours had moved to.

A group from St Brigid’s Club and Day Care Cen­tre, whose base is be­side the old garda bar­racks on Roche’s Road, pic­tured on their tour of the new Wex­ford Garda Sta­tion with Garda Joe Kelly and Chief Su­per­in­ten­dent Pa­trick McMe­namin.
