A male has been arrested following a break in to St Canice's Credit Union overnight.

Minutes later gardaí observed a suspect at the top of the Butterslip. The remnants of a Guide Dog charity receptacle were found nearby.
Gardaí are investigating both incidents and anyone with information can contact (056) 777 5000.
