PILTOWN, OWNING, TEMPLEORUM, FIDDOWN COMMUNITY ALERT

Parishioners are asked to be vigilant with their property as robberies have taken place within the community recently.  Oil, power tools, machinery etc as well as the local chemist were targets of unsocial behaviour.  Luckily the Gardaí have been successful in tracing some items & a big thank you for their detection.

Again vigilance for the elderly is necessary & keep a look out for suspicious vehicles.
