Nenagh Gardai have appealed to motorists and parents to exercise caution outside schools as the summer holidays come to an end.

Parents are being asked to ensure they drop off their children at a safe location and that they do not double park or park illegally outside schools. Meanwhile, drivers have been asked to slow down and be aware of young children at school entrances between 8.30am and 9.30am and again in the afternoons when pupils are coming home.

On the crime front, Nenagh Gardai are looking for a man who entered a shop on Pearse Street, Nenagh, on August 26 and tried on a pair of runners. When the shop assistant checked the shoe box they discovered the man had placed his own shoes in it and had left without paying for the runners, which were worth E110.

The Gardai are investigating an assault in a pub in Roscrea at 12.30am on August 30 in which a man allegedly assaulted another man.

A van had its windows broken in an incident in Assumption Park, Roscrea, on August 31. The van was damaged when it was struck by stones. The Gardai are appealing for the public’s help in relation to the attack.
