Ballymote District Garda Headquarters

The new Garda Headquarters fits snuggly into the context of this small town with its distinctive two storey rendered façade and pitched, slated roof. The 1,,220m2 building replaces an existing Garda station located several doors away on O’Connell Street, Ballymote, Co Sligo. Accommodation internally is arranged off generous corridors at ground and first floor levels, with a roof-lit atrium at the junction between the front and rear blocks. Interview rooms are located at ground floor within the rear block and in close proximity to the charging hatch, juvenile detention room and three cells. Office accommodation, the parade room, changing facilities and a gymnasium are located on the first floor.
