Wicklow woman to head up new Eastern Garda Region
A Wicklow woman who was recently promoted to the position of Assistant Commissioner in An Garda Síochána will head up the new Eastern Garda Region which covers the Wicklow division.
Assistant Commissioner Anne Marie Cagney, who is from Dunlavin, is assigned responsibility, on promotion, for the Garda Eastern Region and assumes her position with immediate effect.
Anne Marie Cagney has 31 year’s experience in the Garda Síochána in strategic and operational policing roles and was appointed as Chief Superintendent for the Dublin Metropolitan East Division in February, 2018.
Previously, she was a Detective Superintendent with national responsibility for Human Trafficking Investigations and Organised Prostitution Investigations.
She is a trained Senior Investigating Officer and manages and coordinates the investigations of major crimes.
Kilkenny will be the headquarters of the new and much larger Eastern region, with responsibility for Wexford, Waterford, Carlow, Kildare, Wicklow, Laois, Offaly, Meath and Westmeath. South Tipperary, from the old South Eastern region, will now be moved into the new South region.
