Straw Bales Maliciously Set On Fire On South Tipperary Farmland.

South Co. Tipperary farmer, Mr Seán O’Reilly, suffered the loss of some 40 straw bales, following a fire maliciously set alight, sometime around midnight on Wednesday night, August 9th, last.

The fire, which was first spotted by his wife, latter having spotted the flames from their nearby home; was restricted to a field which had just been harvested on Sunday last, on land in the townland of Ballinree, Cashel, Co. Tipperary, situated off the Cashel to Mitchelstown Motorway.

Flames from the fire could be spotted from a distance, before Gardai and Emergency Services, who quickly attended at the scene, got the blaze under control.

Investigating Gardai are now anxious to hear from anyone who may be in a position to assist them in their ongoing enquiries. Witnesses and those with any information are asked to contact either Cashel, Tel: (062-75840) or Cahir Tel: (052-744 5630) Garda Stations.
