Clon­roche amenity area suf­fers theft set­back

Enniscorthy Guardian - - NEWS -

CLON­ROCHE De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion along with En­nis­cor­thy Gar­daí are ap­peal­ing for po­ten­tial wit­nesses to a theft from the site of the new amenity area on Spout Road.

At some point on Thursday, nearly half a mile of rope was re­moved from the site by cal­loused thieves.

The rope was to be used for the pur­pose of pulling ca­bles through for light­ing and while the value of the rope is only ap­prox­i­mately €50, the es­ti­mated cost of re-in­stal­la­tion is in the re­gion of €2,670, a dev­as­tat­ing blow to the project.

In a state­ment is­sued by the De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion, they said: ‘ This op­er­a­tion of steal­ing was not car­ried out in a few min­utes, but took a con­sid­er­able time. As many houses over­look the area, it is pos­si­ble some­one saw the cul­prits. We in Clon­roche De­vel­op­ment As­so­ci­a­tion will ap­pre­ci­ate any in­for­ma­tion we can get on this in­ci­dent with a prom­ise of anonymity. If we es­tab­lish the iden­tity of the per­pe­tra­tors it is our in­ten­tion to pur­sue, through the courts, for full costs.’

There was also a roll of ca­bling stolen from a roof in the fa­cil­ity. A spokesman for En­nis­cor­thy Gar­daí said that a full in­ves­ti­ga­tion was on­go­ing and urged any­one with in­for­ma­tion to con­tact them on 0539242580.
