Here's what happened to all the Garda Stations that were closed in Dublin

The closures were carried out as part of the rationalisation programme.

SINCE 2011, 139 garda stations have been closed across the country. Dublin was one of the hardest hit counties with six stations closed and 10 others reduced.

The closures were carried out as part of the rationalisation programme An Garda Síochána announced in the 2012 and 2013 policing plans.

Another station at Fitzgibbon Street in Dublin’s north inner city was closed for refurbishment, and has been derelict since aside from a small public office.

Here’s what has happened to the six Dublin stations that have closed for good since 2011:
