Rogue tradesmen stole cash from the Clonmel home of a woman aged in her 90s while doing work on her house last week.

The conmen were doing work on tiles and guttering on the woman’s house at Catherine Street when they committed the crime, which was reported to Gardai around 12.30pm last Thursday.

Gardai investigating the incident have appealed to elderly people as well as their relatives and neighbours to be wary and vigilant of tradesmen calling to homes offering to do home repairs and improvements. Many are charging exhoritant rates for the work they do,

A spokesman for Clonmel Garda Station advised people to contact the Gardai if they have concerns about the legitimacy of anyone calling to them offering to do work on their homes.
