GARDAÍ ARE INVESTIGATING after several cars outside two GAA clubs were broken into in the space of an hour.

The incidents took place at St Jude’s and Faughs in Templeogue, Dublin.

Within an hour eight cars had been broken into – four at each club – between 8pm and 9pm.

Investigating gardaí from Terenure say the windows of cars were broken or locks damaged, and small items of property taken.

St Jude’s are now advising anyone at the car park to keep an eye out for strangers in the area:

Gardaí have warned the public to be extra vigilant as the evenings get darker.

There is an increase of as much as 25% in the number of burglaries during the winter months.

Authorities are advising homeowners to “have an alarm, light up their home this winter, lock their doors and windows and sheds, and join or set-up a local crime prevention scheme”.
