An Garda Síochána have announced that the first phase of Garda station closures for 2013 will go ahead on the 31st of January. 95 stations will close on this date and responsibilities for each station will be consolidated within a neighbouring district or by a neighbouring station within the same district.
Following on from previous work looking at crime figures at station level the team at AIRO have developed a data visualisation that provides a summary of crime figures between the years 2003-2011.

Following the release of the CSO’s September Residential Property Price Index there has been much discussion in the media and from commentators regarding the development of a two-tier housing market in Ireland.
Comparatively the annual increase of residential property prices in Dublin (+12.2%) compared to the rest of Ireland (-2.6%) suggests differing market conditions. Ongoing reports regarding supply, demand and development policies in particular areas further fuels this argument.
With the latest CSO Live Register release figures show the continued downward trend with a decrease in seasonally adjusted figures of 1,800. This leaves the current number of men and women on the Live Register at 414,300.
The Standardised Unemployment Rate is currently at 13.3% following a 0.1% decrease on last month and a 1.8% decrease since of the February 2012 high of 15.2%. The last time the Live Register hit that figure was December 1993.
