A new Garda station is set to open on O'Connell Street in Dublin.

It will help tackle drug dealing and anti-social behaviour in the city centre.

Justice Minister Helen McEntee told the Fine Gael parliamentary party meeting yesterday that this new station will open in the coming months.

Operation Citizen and Operation spire, which target anti social behaviour and drug dealing, will run from the premises according to the Irish Times. Victim support services may also feature.

Number 13A had been used as a citizens information office.

A Garda station was previously in operation on O’Connell Street but was closed a number of years ago.

It follows comments by Fianna Fáil TD Jim O’Callaghan who said gangs of youths, who believe they are immune to apprehension, are prowling the streets of Dublin looking for people to attack.

He told the Dáil there are not enough Gardaí patrolling at night.
