Public Urged To Reveal Bonfire Tyre Stashes

The appeal came at the October meeting of Nenagh Joint Policing Committee at which council tenant liaison officer Tracy Thompson said that the council was trying to identify open spaces and common areas where bonfires might be lit. “Over the next while we will be keeping an eye on tyres, we will visit petrol stations and the Chamber of Commerce asking them to keep an eye on product sales. We are encouraging the public to get in touch and I can make regular inspections of areas in the weeks approaching Halloween,” she said.
