Garda Station closed to the public?

Is this a Covid 19 precaution or a left over from the recession. The GS website https://www.garda.ie/en/about-us/our...9-13-3-20.html
says all public offices will remain open.
If its still open then I'd drop it in regardless, no notification has been issued as to the suspension of the normal routine re fire arms licencing.
I won't wait until the travel ban is up, that may be quite a while yet.

Talked to my local fellah last nite[Limerick area] .They are getting them out,but it's on a low pirority list of things to do.So it's on a "when we have a spare minute" time basis.

Cheers, I dropped one in about a week before the lockdown started. I imagine it wouldn't have the same kind of priority as renewals.

Put in an application this week and the guards took it no problem. Be interesting to see how long it takes.

Hi gizz
I suppose that's not just limerick, that policy must be filtering out from the Phoenix park...!?

Proably,but in these times it is understandable and acceptable if paperwork is moss growth slow.

Gardaí have their hands full with a lot of Covid related “new” work but at the same time a lot of routine work has disappeared, less traffic means less RTC’s, no pubs and clubs open means no Saturday night pissheads, etc etc ...

Our local crime prevention Sgt. for example called around last week for a brief but thorough inspection ( keeping appropriate distances and all ) of a newly fitted alarm and locks etc etc since we’re about to go over the three or less unrestricted firearms in the household with the young lad looking for a second gun.

They must be hard pressed though.On one RTE news report about Garda traffic stops starting last Thursday,we had a Chief Superintendent going by his shoulder boards waving down traffic and sticking his head in a car window on the M50 to examine some papers!. So things must be hard if they have the senior ranks out on traffic stops.:
