Gardaí in Carrick-on-Shannon have advised those who intend on getting out and about this bank holiday weekend to both plan their journeys in advance and to also to be wary of their personal property when socialising.

TheJune Bank Holiday Weekend tends to be one of the busiest times of the year both nationally and locally as people take to the roads to visit family and friends in all corners of the country. As per usual the N4 Sligo/Dublin road through Carrick-on-Shannon will be one of the busiest arteries and with this in mind, Insp. Ray Mulderrig from Carrick-on-Shannon Garda Station has asked people to plan their trips prior to departure.

He warned: “There will be a lot more traffic on the road this weekend than normal due to the bank holiday and we most certainly expect delays across the county but particularity on busier roads such as the N4 through Carrick.”

Insp. Mulderrig also asked anyone who plans to socialise across the county this weekend to keep an eye on their belongings. He continued: “You wouldn’t leave €500 on a counter top so why leave you mobile phone there?

“We would also ask people to respect those who live and work in these areas they plan to visit and to respect the peace.

“We have plenty of tourism hot spots in Leitrim so we would warn people to be alert and keep their personal property at home and not in their cars where they may be in view of potential thieves,” he said.
