Warning to hill-walkers and visitors ahead of the Bank Holiday

The May bank holiday will see an increase in hill-walking activity and visitors throughout the county.

The Gardaí are appealing to people parking in the uplands to take the following measures to protect their vehicles:

  • Avoid leaving bags, clothing etc on view within the vehicle;
  • Open the glove box, and where possible, the lid on the boot, to show there is nothing in the vehicle;
  • Remove portable sat navs and dash cams including cradle and suction pads; also wipe any suction marks off the windscreen;
  • If you must leave valuables in the boot, put them in before you arrive at the parking location;
  • Secure the vehicle;
  • Report all break-ins or damage to vehicles;
  • Watch for, and report, suspicious any activity by dialling 999.
