TIPP FAMILY FARM ROBBED FOR THE 6TH TIME
A Tipperary farmer who has been targeted by burglars for a sixth time has appealed to all the newly elected TDs to help fight rural crime.
Almost 13,000 euro worth of goods has been stolen from Clive Clarke’s property in Barna near Moneygall so far.
The most recent break-in was reported just two nights ago.
Mr Clarke says politicians never live up to their pre-election promises to help.
“It’s gone to the stage now where they’re wondering how we’re going to help people who are under so much pressure that they’re committing suicide – they need to address this situation”, he said.
“There’s nobody actually out there, no TDs, no nothing”.
“They’ll all tell you ‘if we get into government, we’ll get extra gardaí, we’ll help this’ – they won’t, they’ll take pay rises and line their own pockets” he added.
