Communities are left feeling vulnerable without a visible garda force

Over the course of the past five months, I have submitted several parliamentary questions requesting a breakdown of Garda numbers on a county and station basis.
Each time, the Minister for Justice Frances Fitzgerald confirmed that she had the information, but failed to pass it on despite my repeated requests.
It is highly unusual for a Minister to frustrate the parliamentary process in this manner.
