Thomastown Gardaí still hunting for culprit of barrage of hoax calls

Thomastown Gardaí are warning of the “enormous waste of time” hoax calls to emergency services are.

It comes after 16 such calls were received in just one evening recently.

In the space of an hour and a half four prank calls were made for the fire brigade, five for ambulance control, three for Gardaí and four were just silent.

Speaking to KCLR, Sergeant Catherine O’Gorman says they’re trying to find the culprit and she says responding to these calls means they’re not available if a real emergency happens.
