The move is being hailed as a 'step in the right direction' by an Offaly councillor.

Two midlands Garda stations are set to re-open.

The stations in Rhode and Daingean will become operational once again, with limited opening hours.

The move is being welcomed as a 'step in the right direction' by Councillor Robert McDermott, who says it's a reflection of the growing population in North Offaly.

The Fianna Fáil rep also says he's requested a meeting with the Superintendent, to discuss the possibility of increasing Garda numbers in the Edenderry station, which is currently open on a part-time basis.
