The Rod Stewart Concert is due to take place in Pairc Ui Chaoimh, Co. Cork on the 25th May 2019. Doors are due to open at 6pm with event due to finish at approximately 10.45 pm.

Speaking at Anglesea Street Garda Station today, Inspector James Hallahan said “A full traffic plan for the concert has been has been published on the Garda website. As the doors open at 6pm we can expect delays in and out of Cork City. We are asking motorists and pedestrians to be patient and follow the direction of Gardaí and stewards. I would appeal to anyone going to concert to use the Bus Eireann shuttle busses from Lapps Quay or walk to Pairc Ui Chaoimh as there is no parking around the stadium and there will be a tow away operation in place.

As always, when travelling to and from the stadium I would ask that patrons respect the local residents and businesses. This is an event for all the family and consuming alcohol out in public will not be tolerated. During the course of the day we want everyone to enjoy themselves but we would ask that you remember a few simple things;

Have a plan for the evening on how you are getting to and from the event. Be mindful of your property. Keep your phone, wallet or purse on you at all times. If you find yourself in a scenario and sense there could be trouble, walk away and call the Gardaí. Most of all, enjoy the concert and stay safe.”

The Road Safety Authority (RSA) and the Irish Farmers Association (IFA) are urging road users to take extra care as the number of tractors, trailers and other farm machinery using the roads increases.

The appeal comes as farmers and contractors around the country undertake the first cut of silage.

Michael Rowland, Director Road Safety Research & Driver Education, RSA, said: “This is a very busy time of year for farmers with silage cutting underway. There are more tractors and trailers out using the roads, which means the risk of a collision involving a road user and farm machinery has increased. Motorists need to be on the lookout for tractors, trailers and other agricultural machinery exiting from fields and farm-yards. We should all expect the unexpected, as danger could literally be around the next corner.”

Drivers of agricultural vehicles are being reminded that they are subject to all road traffic legislation. They are required to carry the appropriate license and farm vehicles are required to be taxed, insured and must be roadworthy, including fully operational lights front and rear.

IFA President, Joe Healy said: “I am appealing to everybody to be safety conscious during this busy period. If we cooperate, we can all share the roads. I would ask drivers of machinery to watch for traffic building up to the rear and to keep left if an opportunity arises to let traffic pass safely. For other road users, I would ask them to be patient and do not attempt to overtake unless it is safe to do so.”

Drivers of agricultural vehicles are reminded:

·         to wash down wheels regularly to avoid carrying mud and stones onto the public road

·         to be particularly careful when transporting material such as silage, slurry, sand and gravel so that it does not spill on the road and pose a road safety risk

·         not to load overload trailers so as to cause them to be unstable on the road

·         to look out for low bridges, overhanging trees, overhead cables and uneven road surfaces which could cause the load to shift and possibly overturn

·         the driving mirror must provide an adequate view of the road to the rear and all agricultural vehicles must have proper working brakes on both tractor and trailer units. They also must be fitted with lights, reflectors and indicators.

·         that large farming vehicles should consider using an escort vehicle to warn other road users, and,

·         to ensure that tractors are driven at an appropriate speed for the road conditions.

For more information on legal requirements and road safety regarding agricultural vehicles using public roads, please contact the RSA at [email protected]; You can also view the rules of the road here

An Garda Síochána wishes to alert the public of the continuing existence of Invoice Redirect Fraud and so called CEO Fraud and urges businesses to remind employees to treat any request to change bank account details with extreme caution. Losses amounting to over €4,400,000 have been reported to Gardaí so far in 2019.

April 2019
In April 2019, alone there have been numerous attempts in relation to this type of fraud with in excess of €2,270,000 stolen. An Garda Síochána in conjunction with Financial Institutions, Financial Intelligence Units Worldwide and Foreign Police forces, have recovered in excess of €1,280,000.

An Garda Síochána works very closely with the Financial Institutions in this regard who have intercepted many transactions of this nature however it can be difficult to recover funds once they have left the jurisdiction so prompt reporting is critical.

In crimes of this nature, criminals send emails to businesses purporting to be one of their legitimate suppliers. These emails contain a request to change the bank account details that the business has for a legitimate supplier, to bank account details that ultimately benefit the criminals. These requests can also come by way of letter or phone call so caution should attach to any request of this nature.

The criminal intention is that when the legitimate supplier next sends an invoice to the company seeking payment for services rendered or goods supplied, the victim business acts on the new banking instructions and sends the payment to the criminal’s bank account where the funds are quickly transferred or withdrawn. In many instances the business does not know it is a victim of this crime until sometime later when the legitimate supplier sends a reminder invoice for payment.

Businesses must ensure that they have robust policies and procedures in place to deal with requests of this nature including escalating the decision making function to supervisory positions and making direct contact with a trusted known person in the suppliers organisation. In this context it is imperative that a suitable known contact person is identified before a business relationship commences with the supplier.

If a business relationship has already commenced and no such checks are in place and a request of this nature is received; independent contact should be made with the supplier to verify the contents of the email. Under no circumstances should contact details contained in the email or attachments be relied upon to verify the request whether these consist of a physical address, an email address or a phone number. In that context, all existing business relationships should be reviewed without delay and defensive policies and procedures put in place.

It is important to note that victims of Invoice Redirect Fraud range from very small businesses to large corporations and the consequences of falling for a scam of this nature can be catastrophic and can result in the closure of businesses and redundancies so all employees should receive training in relation to avoiding this type of scam.

Detective Chief Superintendent Pat Lordan, of the Garda National Economic Crime Bureau, says ‘stop and think before you change bank account details for anyone. Ask the question, is this really the person / company you owe money to. Pick up the phone and speak to the person concerned’

Gardaí have arrested and charged a man (20s) and a woman (30s) in relation to a theft from person on Oliver Plunkett Street, Co Cork on 13th May 2019.

Shortly after 10:30pm, Gardaí from Anglesea Street on foot patrol in the area received a report that a man and a woman had taken a mobile phone from a lady on Oliver Plunket Street. Both suspects were arrested a short distance away from the scene and brought to Bridewell Garda Station. They were detained under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984 and has since been charged to appear before the courts at a later the date. The mobile phone was recovered and returned to the owner.

Speaking at Anglesea Street Garda Station today, Crime Prevention Office Sgt Tony Davis said “Mobile phones are worth an awful lot of money nowadays which makes them a target for thieves. Try to void making or taking calls out in public if you can, especially at night. Keep your mobile phone safely on your person and out of view. If your mobile phone is lost or stolen, immediately report it to Gardaí and contact your service provider in order to have your IMEI number blocked, so that it can’t be used. The IMEI number is a 15 digit mobile phone number located on the back of your phone underneath the battery, or you can locate it by dialling * # 06 # on your keypad.”

“If you a have a SmartPhone, consider downloading a location finder App. Other preventative measures you can take include enabling the PIN Security feature; keeping your phone locked at all times; and property-mark it with unique personal letters or numbers.”

Gardaí in the Bandon District have seized approximately €11,000 worth of suspected drugs and arrested 29 people over the Bank Holiday Weekend.

As part of the policing plan for the Kinsale 7s Rugby Tournament, Gardaí deployed additional plainclothes members from the Divisional Drugs Unit and members from the Roads Policing Unit, in and around the town of Kinsale. As a result, 29 people were arrested for incidents of public order, possession of drugs and drink/drug driving.

Speaking at Bandon Garda, Superintendent Brendan Fogarty said:

“We had well over 20,000 people come through Kinsale over the bank holiday weekend, the vast majority were respectful and complied with Gardaí and stewards. However, we had 60 detections for possession of suspected drugs, mostly cocaine, which amounted to approximately €11,000. This is an alarming amount of detections for drugs. Drugs have such a negative impact on so many lives and have no place in our communities. 6 people also took the risk of getting behind the wheel with drugs or alcohol in their system. People who do this are putting themselves, our family, and our friends at risk by driving whilst intoxicated. If you are going out and want to have a few drinks, leave the car at home. Never ever drink and drive.”

Gardaí are appealing to members of the public go be vigilant following a recent spate of ATM robberies. They are urging the public to contact Gardaí if they see any suspicious or unusual activity, particularly in the early morning in towns and villages across the country in particularly the movement of plant machinery, commercial 4 X 4 vehicles or pick-up trucks.

Gardaí are also appealing to anyone who owns or uses heavy plant machinery to please take every possible step to secure and immobilise your vehicles. Please ensure they are stored securely and not left in an area that is easily accessible overnight. If criminal groups cannot steal diggers and other similar machinery, they cannot tear out ATMs. This will also mean that these expensive pieces of machinery are not destroyed or burnt out after they are stolen

Gardaí are reminding the public to not assume somebody else has already made the call. You can also contact your local Garda Station, 999/112, Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or Crimestoppers on 1800 250 025.
