Ballaghaderreen Garda vehicles and station vandalised

Gardai in Ballaghaderreen are investigating after the window of the barracks and two Garda patrol vehicles were vandalized over night.

A patrol car had its mirrors broken off and a community van had its front windscreen damaged, while a front window of the station was also smashed in the incidents which occurred at approximately 2.15 am this morning; but there was no attempt to gain entry to the garda station itself.

The station was unoccupied at the time and Gardai are appealing for anyone who may have been in the area at the time, or seen anything suspicious, to contact them.


They are especially interested in tracking down the driver of a small dark or black coloured car seen in the area at the time.

Inspector Tom Colsh from Castlerea Garda station is leading the investigation :
