Reports in Cherrymount area, some fella in his twenties, neat ginger hair, slim build with a blue clipboard trying houses for size by knocking/ringing several times leaving returning doing it again and then taking a chance.
whoops can a mod merge this?
I'll stick my hurleys next to the door for the next while so.
Called to our place in Cherrymount and if he does it again I'll be letting him know where to go.
Those nigerians can be trouble alright
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.
ya never know it may be a trap, he might be sat near the window with a shotgun of something
Maybe thats it yeah haha. he is extremely quiet so maybe the quietness is covering up his homicidal tendencies.
Similar guy knocking on doors on the Dunmore road. Had a blue clipboard with a sheet on saying it was for a sponsored cycle from Cork to Waterford to raise funds for a clinic for people with addiction issues.. Said it was called Victory Outreach..
I'd say it was for addiction issues alright.
Sorry I got the name wrong.. Victory Outreach..
Shotguns at the ready folks !!!! :0 what happens when old people are afraid to open the door and these guys think no one is home and go breaking in????
i remember a guy with a blue van doing this in our area some years back ... scary
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.
