Anglers are asked to keep an eye out for stolen boat engines offered for sale. On Tuesday night 8 outboard engines were taken from boats moored at Cushlough, Ballinrobe. The engines were mostly Honda and Yamaha models, and may be offered for sale to unsuspecting buyers. Anyone who has any information please pass to the Garda Siochana in Claremorris at 094 937 1222.
