Specialised equipment

“This is specialised equipment used by farmers and agricultural contractors.

"The theft of this equipment has seriously impacted the agricultural contractor's ability to provide a service to the local farming community, at a particularly busy time of year with the start of the silage and cereal season.

“The items are of high value and not readily replaceable,” Gardaí said.


Gardaí are appealing to the farming and contracting community to be vigilant in the event that they may be offered this type of equipment for sale.

Anyone with information which might lead to the recovery of the equipment is asked to contact Gardaí in Bagenalstown on 059 9774120.
