Motorists warned to be aware of eggs being thrown at vehicles

Gardai in Carrick-on-Shannon are warning motorists of a number of incidents where eggs have being thrown at vehicles in the Lough Allen area.

The attacks have occurred on the R280, which is the main Drumshanbo to Drumkeeran road.

In one incident, a car was hit by eggs nearly causing the driver to lose control late at night.


Gardai are advising parents to speak to their children about the dangers of throwing eggs at moving vehicles and the hazards it can cause.

Garda Dora Tracy has issued this appeal.
