The ‘Tip of the Week’- If anyone has seen or sees what they think are suspicious vehicles/persons in the area, please contact the Gardai. Be alert to strange vehicles passing by the same road many times or vehicles in lay-bys that look suspicious. If contacting the Guardai to report a suspicious vehicle give as good a description as possible e.g. van/car/truck, colour, make, model and of course the best information of all is a registration number, or even part of one. Remember you must never challenge anyone behaving suspiciously or put yourself in danger.
