Youth in court over Kildare burglary and car-chase

A 16-year-old is due in court this morning after an attempted burglary and crash in Kildare.

Another teenager remains in garda custody, one has been released without charge, while a fourth remains in a serious condition in hospital.

It’s after gardaí intercepted a car on the N7 Naas Road yesterday afternoon while investigating reports of a robbery in nearby Athy.


The car stopped briefly before speeding off and colliding with another vehicle at the Johnstown junction.
