Burglaries in the Area!

Dear Resident(s),

We are contacting you to inform you of a recent spate of burglaries in the Carpenterstown/Riverwood & Luttrelstown areas in the past weeks/month.  


At the beginning of March, the Riverwood resident's  association forwarded on an email in which they indicated they had four burglaries in the one night. 


Then on the night of 16th/17th March, two houses were broken into in Sycamore & Maple.    And again on the 23rd, two more houses were burgled.   

The Gardaí are aware of all the incidents and are actively investigating these crimes, with some definite leads into a number of groups.

Public footpaths are the property of Fingal County Council and as such are required to be 'kept clear' at all times. Disabled residents rely heavily on our area's footpaths to be clear. Please check your green growth and cut it back if it's growing beyond your property.

Clean-up Day

The Carpenterstown Park residents started gathering at Tennis court greens at around 10:30am. Resource materials like gloves, bags, litter pickers e.t.c. were provided by the Carpenterstown park Residents association. Within an hours time lot of kids came out along with their parents to help in this cause. It generated quite an excitement among them as everyone was keen to bring in a bigger bag full of litter. Many residents got to know each other through this healthy exercise. Some residents got their shovels out and started uprooting the weeds alongside the Sycamore avenue. Within two hours loads of litter bags filled and piled up under the Carpenterstown park Residents association banner. Later on, in liaison with Fingal County Council, litter bags were collected by their staff. Carpenterstown park Residents association had also some refreshments and goodies for the kids in the shape of chocolates, sweets, chips, juices, fizzy drinks and biscuits.
