20 April 2017:
Two million euro is to be spent on a new hangar for the air ambulance in Athlone.
The service, which was made permanent in 2015, has been based at a temporary structure at Custume Barracks since it began operating on a pilot basis almost five years ago.
The Government is committed to the future of the barracks, having already spent €6m since 2009.
