Appeal after Tipperary graveyard targeted by thieves

Gardai have made an appeal for information following a theft from the new Ballyclerihan graveyard last weekend.

Thieves stole two polished granite stone pieces from a grave in the new Ballyclerihan graveyard sometime between 9.30pm on Friday, September 28 and Saturday morning 10.45am.

The granite blocks are described as dark grey in colour with a polished finish, a quarter circle in shape and are approximately four inches in height.

A spokesperson for the gardai said the incident was highly upsetting for the family involved.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Clonmel Garda Station at 052-6177640
