Gardaí in Limerick are investigating the theft of a pair of railway-crossing steel gates that were taken from a road and rail junction in the county last weekend.

Gardaí are unsure of the exact time of the “unusual theft” in Linfield, Pallasgreen but believe it took place sometime between Friday evening and Monday morning.

Separately, some motor enthused thieves went to extreme lengths when they stole the tail lights of a car that was parked overnight in the County Limerick village of Clarina.

Gardaí are investigating the incident where a parked Volkswagen Golf drew the attention of thieves at Glascurram, Clarina last Wednesday night.

The following morning, the owner of the vehicle discovered that the back window had been smashed and the lights had been removed.
