It’s been a bad week for cars in Carlow and Kilkenny with a number of them damaged by criminals.

The first was last Saturday when a silver Volkswagon Golf, which was parked in the Fairgreen area of Carlow had its window smashed at around 2 o’clock.

The next day, Sunday, the rear passenger window of a car parked on Market Street in Thomastown was broken and items were taken.

On Monday, a red Honda Civic was scratched along the driver’s side while parked in the driveway of a house at Pococke Lower on the Johnswell Road in Kilkenny.

On Wednesday, a car parked outside the graveyard at Tinaclash in Carlow was broken into and a handbag was taken.

And finally, on Thursday a car parked outside St Mary’s Graveyard on the Dublin Road in Carlow had its window smashed and another handbag taken.
