Gardaí in Ennis have renewed their appeal for information about a number of incidents that occurred over the last week.
Crime Prevention Officer for Clare, Sergeant Triona Brooks, has outlined a series of incidents which Gardaí continue to investigate.
“On Wednesday, 30th November reports were received of a firearm being discharged at Shallee Drive and Cloughleigh Road. Thankfully there was nobody injured. Gardaí were quickly at the scene and a number of searches were carried out in the Ennis area after the reports and a number of vehicles have been seized as part of this investigation,” Sgt Brooks said.
