Gardaí in Granard are hoping members of the public will assist them with enquiries into three suspected vandalism incidents close to Edgeworthstown last night

Gardaí have launched a public appeal for information after a number of refuse bins were allegedly set alight outside Edgeworthstown last night.

Investigators have this afternoon launched a probe after three separate incidents were reported by households at around midnight.

All three took place along the Bracklin Road and Moatfarrell areas of the mid Longford town.

Due to the proximity of each incident, gardaí are satisfied all three are linked and have appealed for the public's assistance.

Anyone with information or who may have seen anything untoward along the Bracklin Road area shortly before midnight is asked to contact Granard garda station on (043) 6686512.
