Reports of suspicious vehicles and activity Ballybay and Shercock

There have been reports of suspicious vehicles and activity the Ballybay and Shercock areas this afternoon.

People are being asked to be on the alert for a Grey Nissan Van with a 151- D registration plate and ‘Quill Plant Hire’ on the side, as well as a silver Volvo Estate both acting suspiciously in the areas. There have also been further reports of people calling to properties in Ballybay, Rockcorry, and Dartry offering to provide tarmac, and laneway dressing for free, before offering to carry out other works for payment.

Gardaí have advised residents to only deal with reliable contractors, and to check in on elderly neighbours who may be more vulnerable to being pressurised.
