Posted by


GARDAI are looking for the public’s help in relation to a series of burglaries in Tralee and around the county.

In all, there were 14 burglaries reported in the past week or so in Tralee, Killarney, Dingle, Castleisland and Kilgarvan.

Gardaí say a black or dark coloured Volkswagen Golf with the licence plate 07-L-1432 may have been involved in some of the burglaries. Gardai believe the plates are cloned so they are not the original plates. The car was spotted in Tralee and Killarney.

  1. Cloned licence plate?? You can walk into any shop that supplies plates and order them. No need for ID or a logbook. This needs to change.
