Tar gangs spark garda alert in Mayo

GARDAÍ have issued an alert about tarmacadam gangs offering their services to householders in the Mayo region.

The ‘contractors’ go from door to door offering to fill holes in driveways caused by the winter flooding.

Sometimes they suggest additional tarmac works to homeowners in return for cash.

Some of the homeowners approached in recent weeks are vulnerable because of their advanced years and the fact they’re living alone.

Urged a garda spokesperson: “We are advising home owners to deal only with registered tradespersons.

“Anyone with concerns should contact their local garda station with details.”
