Construction of a €1.7 million fire station is ready to start and it is hoped that work on the new €6 million headquarters for Kilkenny will start towards the end of 2021.

The minister added: “This is a clear demonstration of the Government’s support for our fire service and the work they do in protecting people, communities, property and local infrastructure from fire and other emergency situations.”
