Gardaí have launched an investigation following a number of burglaries that occurred in Edgeworthstown today (Wednesday, August 15). 

The houses, situated on the Ballymahon Road, are understood to have been unoccupied at the time of the raids. 

This incident in Edgeworthstown comes just seven days after three burglaries and attempted break-ins took place in Ardagh, Aughnacliffe and near Drumlish. 

Gardaí believe the same gang were behind last week's incidents given the same modus operandi was used in each case.
