Residents warned following 'strange incident' in Offaly countryside

Householders and land owners in the North Offaly have been told to be vigilant following a 'strange incident' on Friday evening.

One resident reported the incident in the Ballyfore area, not far from Edenderry, at around 5.30pm.

"A man came into the premises and looked at cars, checked if they were open, was disturbed by owner and then went into a neighbour's garden," they said.

The resident said they were sharing the story so other people would be vigilant and ensure cars are locked in surrounding areas for the rest of the evening and on an ongoing basis.
