Lar Corbett “€5,000 Reward For Thief”

WantedHurling left corner-forward and three All-Star award GAA winner Lar Corbett is this morning offering a €5,000 reward, following the theft, during last night of takings from the office of his pub, situated on Parnell Street, here in Thurles.

The Tipperary five championship medal holder offered the reward on Twitter, posting CCTV footage of the alleged thief.

Do you recognise this man?

“I need help from the public, I have proper (CCTV) footage, that I will put up here, the reward is €5,000 in cash”, an understandably angry Mr Corbett stated following the discovery on opening his premises this morning.

“By Monday I will have the car and reg that appears to have dropped him, and I will have proper footage of him, this is happening all over the country”, the GAA legend continued.

Lar has now posted CCTV footage captured from outside his premises, which shows a male, wearing a large rucksack or hold-all on his shoulder, walking up to the front door of his premises, before entering.

Thurles Town is one urban area now with CCTV cameras covering its streets on a 24 hour basis and this burglary will now most certainly test this recently installed systems usefulness and the ability to identify crimes committed at night.

Persons with any information on this latest of a long line of Thurles burglaries are being asked to contact Thurles Garda station on Tel: 0504-25100, or the Garda Confidential Line on Tel: 1800-666-111, or indeed any Garda station.

Meanwhile also today the outspoken Kerry politician Michael Healy-Rae has also defended homeowners’ rights to use “reasonable force” against intruders, stating that rural crime had reached “crisis” levels.

National “Slow Down” Day Began Today

gardaTonight is Friday night and for some reason, best known to themselves, Irish motorists, on Friday nights, appear to participate best when it comes to performing dangerous, careless, driving rituals, on both our national primary and secondary roads.

With 108,971 speeding fixed charge notices alone issued nationally, as of 30th June 2015, it is not surprising that An Garda Síochána have decided to conduct an intensive national speed enforcement operation for the next 24 hour period; from 7:00am today (Friday 28th August 2015) to 7:00am tomorrow (Saturday 29th August 2015).

This national “Slow Down” day, today, is supported by all stakeholders, including the Road Safety Authority.

The objective of operation “Slow Down” today is to reduce the number of speed related collisions, save lives and reduce injuries on our roads. The aim is to remind drivers of the dangers of speeding, increase compliance with speed limits and act as a deterrent to driving at excessive and inappropriate speeds.

Last year saw a further increase in road deaths, resulting in some 195 fatalities. Excessive or inappropriate speed is a major contributory factor to road traffic collisions. The higher the speed, the greater the likelihood is of a collision happening and the more severe the outcome of that collision.

Todays operation will consist of Garda high visibility speed enforcement activities on both national primary and secondary roads. All speed enforcement technologies will be utilised, including all laser hand-held speed detection devices, Garda speed vans and in-car speed detection systems.

Do not say you were not warned folks, so in the words of Sergeant Phil Esterhaus from that once famous 80’s TV series “Hill Street Blues” ; “Hey, let’s be careful out there.” .
