Gardai are hoping that the HSE will re-activate CCTV in the Crosslanes car park following a recent incident that saw 24 cars targeted.

'Unfortunately, the CCTV had been switched off a few weeks earlier and we need to get it back operational,' he told the policing meeting.

Outlining incidents in recent months, he said the attacks on the vehicles had taken place overnight in the course of one evening.

Cllr Joanna Byrne said that she imagined the car park would be utilised a lot during the likes of the Fleadh and what measures were in place to protect motorists from such incidents.

'We will ask the hospital to get that system going again as it's huge, we need it. The car park is for the hospital but also GAA matches too,' the supt explained.

He added that someone was before the courts in relation to the incident.
