GARDAI have issued a further statement asking people in Bantry to be on the look-out for two males calling door-to-door in the town, following a warning last week.

The two males were spotted calling to homes of elderly people on Thursday evening. At the time, gardaí issued a warning about a navy Citroen with Kildare 05 number plates (05 KE) in the area.

A number of people writing on The Southern Star Facebook page that night confirmed the sightings.

Now gardaí have urged the elderly – or anyone who comes into contact with strangers at their door – to use their ‘calling cards.’

These were distributed by gardaí and through the Community Alert schemes.

The cards encourage callers to fill out a few short details with contact information, before the homeowner engages with them.

‘Do not open the door to unknown callers,’ the gardaí urged in a statement,. 

They added: ‘Report all suspicious activity.’ 

Bantry gardaí can be contacted at 027 20860.
