Donegal Gardaí have been visiting local schools ahead of next weekend’s Halloween celebrations.
Garda Coyne and Garda Jacob had a fantastic audience (main pic) when they visited St Francis NS Clonmany yesterday!
“It can be a fun time of year but unfortunately for some it is far from fun due to the misbehaviour of but a few,” a garda spokesperson said.
The illegal use of fireworks can and does cause great distress to older people, pets and families.
Gardaí also had a message for parents.
“Parents, please ensure that you know where your kids are and conduct regular searches of their bags for fireworks. Stay alert!
“Talk to your kids about the great dangers associated with fireworks as many people sustain horrific burn related injuries at this time of year. Lets try to ensure that Halloween 2022 and the run up to it is safe yet enjoyable for everyone.”
