Garda warning over fireworks

Gardaí in the Nenagh district have warned that prosecutions will be brought against anyone caught in illegal possession of fireworks.

A reminder has been issued that the sale, possession or use of fireworks is illegal. It is is illegal to possess any fireworks that may have been legally purchased outside of the jurisdiction and then brought into the State. The only exception to these laws is where a professional firework display is authorised under permit, such as the Spleodar festival taking place in Nenagh this Halloween.

Gardaí will confiscate fireworks and prosecute offenders. Anyone with information relating to the illegal sale of fireworks should contact their local garda station.

Meanwhile gardaí have arrested three people on suspicion of drink driving in recent days. Two arrests were made in Nenagh and one in Roscrea.

A male was arrested in Nenagh last Saturday after a window was broken at a public house on Summerhill. It is understood that the man was refused service at the pub; he was arrested under the Public Order Act.

Several searches under the Misuse of Drugs Act were carried out in the district over recent days. A number of small-scale seizures were made.

Gardaí are also reminding local firearms holders that their licences must be renewed. A considerable number of licences are due for renewal in the district. It is an offence to possess an unlicensed firearm and gardaí are warning that prosecutions will be taken against anyone who fails to meet their obligations.
