The Fermoy Gardai have been in contact to let us know of a meeting next Tues. night at the Grand Hotel at 8pm. This is in response to the increase in robberies and break-ins in the Fermoy and surrounding area over the last number of months. The aim of the meeting is to try and resurrect the Community Alert scheme and to make people more aware of what can be achieved through vigilance and local awareness. The Gardai would like to hear your thoughts and opinions on the issue. The meeting will be addressed by Dermot Cronin who is the liaision officer for the Munster region and an expert in local crime prevention.
