Spate of burglaries on Luas line
Property owners along the Luas tram line at Milltown, on Dublin’s south side, are complaining of a spate of burglaries since the line opened in June, writes Niamh Connolly.
Eamonn Rock, a resident of Columbanus Road in Milltown, said houses on the road were exposed to break-ins because the heavy vegetation that had screened gardens had been cut away during Luas works.
Only a small fence had been erected in place of the vegetation, he said.
The most recent burglary was last Monday when Columbanus Road resident Eileen Kelly was robbed of about â‚¬10,000 worth of jewellery.
“About 40 houses are exposed to burglary by the vegetation being uprooted,” Rock said.
“Some people on other roads have walls five foot high.”
A spokesman for the Railway Procurement Agency was not available for comment.
