Over 300 hales of hay were destroyed in a hay barn fire yesterday.
Gardaí are seeking information in connection to the blaze which broke out in the evening.
Gardaí and four units of the fire brigade attended the scene of the incident in Corrandulla and remained on-site for approximately two hours.
In a post on Facebook, Jamie Lynch, who rents the shed from neighbours revealed that three youths were seen running from the scene.
“Luckily thanks to the help of a young neighbour and his father’s tractor, we managed to get the dump trailer out and we pulled the plough out with the front loader.”
“The roof came down less than 5 mins after. Now we’re left hoping the guards can catch them.” The post concluded.
Anyone with information should contact Loughgeorge Garda Station on 091- 798122 or Millstreet Gardaí on 091- 538000.
