Gardaí Urge Safe Halloween 2021

Every year,  An Garda Síochána and Greystones Fire Service receive a number of callouts.

These are for bonfires and firework related incidents.

The Guards are urging parents to stay safe and not to buy fireworks for their children.

It is an offence to possess fireworks without a license.

Possession of unlicensed fireworks can result in a fine of up to €10,000.

Or up to five years imprisonment or both.

Fireworks can cause damage to property,  injury to people and animals.

They can be an annoyance to elderly people.

The Guards will continue to confiscate any fireworks found with persons without a license.

Tips for a Safe Halloween from An Garda Síochána

  • If attending organised fireworks or bonfire,  stay a safe distance away.
  • Young children should be accompanied for Trick or Treating.
  • When Trick or Treating,  avoid houses with no lights on.

Bray/Greystones Cliff Walk Precautions

Wicklow County Council is taking extra precautions at the closed-off section of the walk.

This is to prevent people from using this dangerous section.

Earlier this year,  a section of the Cliff Walk was closed due to damage from landslides.

And from parts of the cliff that were becoming unstable.

At the same time,  WCC is continuing to seek solutions to the serious erosion on the walk.

The walk may be accessed somewhat from Bray going south and from Greystones going north.

But the Cliff Walk cannot be accessed now as a through walk from one end to the other.
