Residents in a small community in Offaly have been forced to report serious anti-social behaviour to An Garda Síochana.
The residents on Croghan Road have been terrorised in recent weeks with vandals pelting their houses with stones.
Further anti-social incidents against locals have also been reported and Gardaí in Birr are now investigating.
They have appealed for information to help put an end to the behaviour.
