How bad is crime in Donabate?

Post by Al the Pal » 08 Nov 2012, 12:40

I'm thinking of burglaries in particular. In the last few months, some friends and colleagues in various Dublin suburbs have all had break-ins and there's a feeling that things are getting worse.

Do people think there's been a noticeable increase in crime in the town?

a lot of people will tell you that crime is low in Donabate.
Department of Justice would also like us to believe that.

But if you talk to a friend or family member who is a guard (doesnt everyone have one of those? :) ), a different picture may be painted.

we dont see or hear half the stuff that goes on

Does anyone know why was the garda helicopter hovering over Donabate last night?

I hear the garage was burgled. If there's any truth in what I was told, one guy was caught, 2 others got away.
