Cattle Rustlers On The Prowl In Tipperary

A part-time farmer based in Tipperary is offering a substantial reward for information leading to the return of 15 cows, taken by cattle rustlers from his farm at Newport, Co Tipperary, over a month ago.

The farmer, Denis Corrigan, said that the ‘Cowboys,’ arrived in a lorry to his farm at about 7.20pm on January 26th last. They spent several hours loading two heifers and 13 in-calf cows, before leaving his property at 2.20am later that night, delayed due to their vehicle getting stuck on the property.

All animals were in-calf except for the two heifers and all were cross-bred Limousins or Belgium Blues, including one pure bred Limousin and have a replacement value of €30,000.

In similar robberies in the nearby Castleconnell area of Co Limerick, over the last 12 months, there have been 12 other cattle taken in separate incidents.

Any information? Then please contact any Garda Station.
