Stepaside Garda Station was reopened last Monday after being vacant for the last eight years. The station was shut under a garda station closure by the then minister Alan Shatter.
The building has been substantially revamped and will now have 25 Gardai working in the station.
Locals and business owners in the area have welcomed the reopening. Acting Minister for Transport, Shane Ross, was among politicians and business owners who attended the opening.
