A greater Garda presence from New Ross is needed in Rosbercon as crime is increasing in the area, according to Cllr Anthony Connick.
Cllr Connick said Mooncoin Garda Station covers Rosbercon, even though the area it is only across the bridge from New Ross Garda Station.
Superintendent John McDonald said emergency calls are responded to from New Ross, but issues can arise due to the limited resources available, where New Ross guards have to attend other incidents across the district.
'Recently we attended a fatal accident in Glenmore. There is ongoing cooperation between us in New Ross and Thomastown,' Supt McDonald said.
