Gardaí in Ennistymon are appealing for witnesses following a break-in to the local parish church on Easter Sunday night/Easter Monday morning.
The break-in was discovered at 10am on Monday morning. A number of doors were damaged and an undisclosed sum of money was stolen from the Trocáire and Easter collections, which were in a safe in the sacristy.
This the second second break-in to a church in Clare in just over a week, but Inspector Paul Slattery of Kilrush Garda Station said he he doesn’t believe the incidents are connected.
Help in solving both crimes can be directed to gardaí in Ennistymon on 065 707 2180.
