Interesting figures revealed at the annual conference of the Garda Representative Association yesterday on Office of Public Works expenditure in garda stations (RTE News, 23rd minute).
€15,000 refurbishing a gym in Letterkenny for which they got a quote for €5,000
€15,000 to put a shower in Ballinahassig garda station.
€4,000 for ten square yards of floor covering in Churchhill garda station.
In other stations:
€1,100 to replace three light bulbs.
€9,500 to take down a central wall.
€36,000 to install a garage door.
It’s the same old story – when the taxpayer is forking out just name your price.
