I am really annoyed as i love where i live but very downhearted that someone is watching all the time, hate that we all have to soooo vigilant.
I live in Hazelbury and my wifes car was ransacked last night too. Nothing valuable in it. She's also pretty sure she forgot to lock it.
I'm sure they got into the back garden too.

2 weeks ago i had a bike stolen from the back garden.

Such a pain in the hole. Makes me want to move

Move where though? From what I've heard it's the same all over Dublin & Cork so probably the same in other Irish cities as well. Very disheartening but we cant let these low-lifes win.

No Need to move buddy. First of all how did they enter the back garden on these 2 occasions do you think? Fence hop? or was it open?. If its the old wooden style fence (one kick and its open) replace it with a good quality steel One with decorative spikes on top (Nice and High) Have the catch piece if possible anchored into your Wall pillar between the houses so its impossible to force.. Next padlock her up (good strong no holes barred padlock invest in a decent one) . Step up that security mate and make it as bloody awkward as possible for those animals to get in. You should not be forced to move from your residence for a bunch of toe-rags. There is another chap on here that stuck up a decent CCTV camera. The more akward and imposing your security set up looks the scoobies will walk by in most cases. They are really looking for easy targets. OPPURTUNISTS.


"The gardai tell us that many break-ins are opportunistic and that a large percentage don't even need a forced entry - the burglar goes through an open window or uses the keys that are left under the door mat"

Have a look at this article people for tips and put them louts out of business

hard not to feel like moving but i am originally from Templeogue, and when moving from hunters run to littlepace toyed with the idea of moving back, houses are lot more expensive so we opted to go bigger in Clonee as we do like the area. My mother has had one burglery in August, lots of gold taken (cash for gold) and 2 attempted in the last two weeks, so rest assured it is the same everywhere, myself and your wife will just have to be more security aware (hubbies will have to double check locks at night) A detective friend tells me it because of recession, crime on the rise???
I wouldnt mind when we had forensics out this summer after some attempted break in they gave us tips to keep them away, we are a corner house so all walls are covered in industrial grease, said at least if they are caught snooping they are covered in grease, hands and clothing, so bit of proof, always put down all your blinds, keys away from reach, and we installed sensor lights. (just need to lock the car now) but will look into that camera. i will not be driven from my home either.

Looks awful . I assumed a crime had been committed and it was being kept sterile for a forensics team

I am also toying with the idea of anti-climb paint/greese two questions

1) if you put it on walls do you legally have to put up a sign saying that its there

2) where would you get this stuff...is it expensive

we got ours off a farmer we know! but you would get it in any agricultural suppliers, anywhere that supplies fertilizer etc, we did 3 walls for about 60€, i bet kellys in dunboyne could advise you where to get if he does not do it! I did say to the forensic guy what happens if a teenager jumps over to get a ball etc and ruins his clothes, his answer was well he wont jump your wall again! they should have manners and knock in!! no mention of needing a sign. but i am no law expert!

Was talking to a friend of mine who lives in Rushenny things got so bad in there that they had a public meeting gaurds told them not to ignore an alarm going off also they copied what Alandale did and put up 2 signs into the estate telling vans that no charity bags/stickers where to be delivered into estate.
Also talking to a friend of mine who lives in littlepace break-in two weeks ago, have no other details I'm afraid.

so suspect that those stickers for the bags are delivered betweek 4 30 and 6am, what is that about, and if it is genuine and not linked to crime they are doing themselves no favours with the rumours that they collect info about houses security, new born in my house so i am keeping an eye at times etc. i will notify guards if i see a pattern of crime on same night as stickers I am on a mission at the momment i must suggest that sign like allendale.

Sorry meant to add that if a sticker or bag came in the door after signage went up they rang the number on the sticker or bag to complain they have noticed a distinct drop off of stickers/bags..............its better to be pro-active than reactive!!!!!!!
