Mayo Fine Gael TD Michelle Mulherin has welcomed confirmation that Crossmolina is to get a new fire station. "I have been pursuing the issue since my election with former minister Hogan and current minister Alan Kelly. Former councillor Eddie Staunton had brought it to my attention and I visited the premises and met with the fire fighters to see for myself," said Deputy Mulherin this week.
"Crossmolina was number one priority for Mayo County Council owing to its terrible condition," she added. "Indeed, I would safely say that the condition of the fire station in Crossmolina is one of the worst in the country.
"This is fantastic news for north Mayo," she said of this week's announcement. "The firefighters do a great job, most recently demonstrated when they were helping to fight the floods in Crossmolina, ably supported by their colleagues in Ballina. It is important that they have a safe and modern environment to do their work.”
