Four arrests have been made following the burning of five cars in Shannon over the Christmas period.
On December 27th, five cars were set alight in Smithstown Industrial Estate. Units of Clare County Fire and Rescue Service from Shannon and Ennis responded to the incident and dealt with the burning cars.
In the last week, four people were arrested and detained in relation to the incident. A file is currently being prepared.
A spokesperson for Ennis Garda Station told The Clare Echo the arrests were made “as a result of assistance from members of the public. We want to thank people for the assistance with this investigation”.
