SERIOUS harm was avoided when oyster trestles were cut in half and dumped at the sea off Donegal.
Thirty-one double oyster trestles were cut, taken from the shore and dumped between January 14, 2021 and March 15, 2021.
The incident occurred at Clar Shore, Redcastle.
“These were dumped in a manner that was very dangerous for other boats,” a Garda spokesperson said.
“The trestles were recovered and no damage or injury was caused – but this could have been a lot worse.”
Anyone with any information on either incident is asked to contact Buncrana Garda Station on 074-9320540.
