Clare Gardaí have recorded a rise in the number of burglaries, thefts and robberies in the county in the first three months of the year.
Last evening’s meeting of the Clare Joint Policing Committee heard that there were 119 burglaries in Clare from January until March, a 15% increase on the same time last year.
300 thefts were recorded, up 12% while the number of robberies was also up for the same time frame.
Despite this rise, most categories of crime showed a decrease this year – Serious assaults are down over 40%, instances of criminal damage fell by almost a quarter
Falls were also recorded in the number of sexual offences and in the sale of drugs throughout the county.
Chief Superintendent John Kerin also revealed that there was an average two road accidents per day on the county’s roads – this number has fallen though there has been a rise in the number of serious collisions.
If you see any suspicious activity Ring the Local Garda Station in Sixmilebridge on 061 369133 or Shannon Garda Station on 061 365900.

With an increasing number of break-ins and robberies throughout the country it was only going to be a matter of time before an attempt would be made on a property in Kilmurry. Within the last two months there were two attempted break-ins, both of which were spoiled by the prompt action of our locals.
To further protect our community we aim to expand the existing mobile text alerting scheme to provide crime prevention information to all within Kilmurry.
A similar scheme is in operation in Ballybeg, Ennis and is proving to be very successful todate. Read more
