4 cars were broken into at Malahide Castle over the weekend.
The windows were smashed and valuables taken. They thieves also
managed to break into the boot of the cars, easy enough to pop
the boot when inside the car so there's little point in hiding
you stuff in the boot. Malahide Castle car park is regularly
targeted by these ''Low Life'' robbers. The castle is the most
visited attraction in the whole of Fingal. The council recently
spent over  €10,000,000 on a restoration job that included a new
Avoca shop and cafe. With this level of investment it's
a wonder Fingal County Council don't provide adequate security
for visitors. The only security visible is a park ranger sitting
in a small van reading the Daily Star. These men have no training
in security. What's required are ''Bouncer Type'' security men deployed
in each of the 2 car parks, at least if they spot thieves they'll know
how to handle the situation. It's time Fingal Co. Co. got the finger out
and start protecting it's biggest investment in the county.
