Garda Assistance to Residents

Over a number of years DERA has established an excellent relationship with An Garda Síochána at Coolock Station and they are active participants in our community events, the highlight being the annual Garda Band concert during the Donaghmede Festival. Garda Sergeant Dan Creedon leads the Community Liaison Team in Coolock Station.

An Garda Síochána have offered to collect and deliver items of local shopping and medication for senior citizens and those of our residents who feel isolated or vulnerable during the current crisis, to the extent that their resources allow. To avail of this service, contact Coolock Garda Station at 01-6664200 and they will advise of their ability to assist.
