A “significant amount of damage” was caused to The Goal Post Bar in the early hours of Sunday morning in a burglary on the clubhouse of Wolfe Tones GAA Club.

Four hooded males entered the premises of ‘the GAA’ shortly after 2am on Sunday morning and caused damage to the bar while trying to retrieve the safe. Strong takings had been recorded over the weekend with the premises busy during and after the two All-Ireland senior hurling semi-finals.

Crime prevention officer, Sergeant Catriona Holohan stated, “Four males entered the premises and caused a significant amount of damage before leaving in a grey Volkswagen Golf. Shannon Gardaí are appealing to anyone that may have witnessed this vehicle in the area, which may have CCTV or dash-cam footage that would have captured the grey Volkswagen Golf. If you have any information, please contact Shannon Garda Station on 061 365900”.

In a statement, Wolfe Tones GAA Club thanked the people of Shannon and surrounding areas for their “incredible support” following the robbery and damage caused to The Goal Post Bar.

The statement, “We are overwhelmed by all the good wishes and are working hard to restore the bar and repair the damage. We appreciate your patience while doing this as it unfortunately means that we will need to remain closed for a few more days. We will keep you updated on our reopening”.
