Gardai have this evening urged the public to be on the lookout for a dark coloured Ford Focus saloon that has been linked to a number of break-ins to parked vehicles.
They are currently intensifying their hunt for the culprits following an alarming spate of thefts from cars. The latest alert follows a number of incidents this Saturday involving the targeting of parked vehicles in the Kerry and Cork area, where cars in Macroom, Millstreet and Rathmore have been broken into and goods were stolen today.
Gardaí issued a warning at 7.30pm this Saturday asking people to keep a close watch for the Focus that is now likely to be in or around the Killarney area, and have reiterated their plea to drivers not to leave any valuables in cars as the opportunist thieves are circling the area waiting to pounce.

We wish to thank everyone who so generously supported our recent church gate collection.
We thank Ciara for this notice. (S.R.)
Sean Riobaird O Suilleabhain was the acknowledged leader of the struggle for the land in this part of the country in the late 19th century. He was known far and wide as ‘The Bard.’ For his efforts he was sentenced to 24 years hard labour but he survived it and became a national hero during his lifetime and afterwards.
He was born in Glenleigh and is buried in Old Kilcorney. It is very appropriate therefore the Kilcorney Historical Society are planning to erect a monument to him and his wife Ellen Mullane at their former home in Knocknakilla near the Millstreet Country park.
A meeting to initiate the project will be held at 7.30pm in the Social Centre Kilcorney on Saturday 23rd August. All are welcome.
