Cows worth €17K stolen in farm raid


A reward is being offered for information leading to the recovery of 14 cattle stolen from a Louth farmland last weekend.

The cattle, all red 18-month-old Limousins crossed with Charolais, were taken from a shed at Ravanny in Louth village on Saturday evening.

Gardai confirmed reports from neighbours that a lorry was seen driving away from the shed with its lights off at around 6pm. When the farmer went to check on his livestock, he found 14 animals worth an estimated €1,200 to €1,300 each had been stolen from several pens in his shed.

The farmer has now offered a €1,000 reward for information leading to their recovery. Anyone with information can contact Ardee Garda Station at 041 6853222.
