Halloween fireworks warning

FOLLOWING a rising number of calls in recent weeks, Gardaí are warning parents to keep an eye on their children and be careful with fireworks in the build up to Halloween.

Gardaí have received a number of calls in the past week about fireworks being set off in some parts of the district, and are once again concerned that somebody will be seriously injured.

A Garda spokesman said: ' We would once again urge the public to continue to report incidents and we would ask parents to keep an eye on youngsters. We are extremely conscious of the safety aspect and there is a very clear risk of serious injury involved.

'Also the loud bangs at night are having a serious effect on dogs in the area and can also be quite frightening to the elderly in the community.'
