Thieves swipe Christmas tree decorations

It is being reported that thieves have stripped the Christmas tree on O Connell Street of half of its decorations and lights.

Gardai have confirmed that decorations from Bells to bobbles and angels to Christmas lights have all been disappearing under the cover of darkness.

A Garda spokesman said today,
"Despite all the hard work carried out by the city council in decorating the streets of Limerick and putting up a large Christmas tree outside Pennys to brighten up the city centre, it appears thieves are stealing lights and decorations from the tree. It would be a terrible pity if these individuals were allowed to spoil the festive occasion and atmosphere across the city centre"
Bastards!.Gardai are looking at CCTV from the area on lower O’Connell street.
