Called to our place in Cherrymount and if he does it again I'll be letting him know where to go.

This is where neighbourhood watch should come in. Anyone who sees someone going door to door and doing more than knocking (ie: peering in), should report them immediately to the Gardai.

Same fella was collecting for a Cork charity in our area (Grange Road) last Friday week. Charity knew nothing about it. Ginger, buck teeth, around 5'10".
Reported it to the Guards.

Maybe thats it yeah haha. he is extremely quiet so maybe the quietness is covering up his homicidal tendencies.

Saw something myself yesterday maybe nothing but you would be thinking. Was walking around the sitting room and saw a dodgy looking guy get out of a car. He was just standing in the middle of the road in the pouring rain and looking at all houses up and down the street. He ran over knocked on a door across the road no answer started trying to look through the glass. Went in next door fella answered and at same time fella nextdoor opened up. He made brief conversation with the fella who opened the door and said nothing to the fella at the first house he knocked on. Jogged off into car and drove off. Maybe nothing but just looked dodgy.
