A Stihl Con Saw like the one in the catalogue image above was among the items stolen from the backyard shed in St. John’s Park in Castleisland in the early hours of this Friday morning.

A spokesperson at Castleisland Garda Station has confirmed that an overnight break-in in the locality resulted in thousands of Euro worth of tools being stolen.
