'Accident waiting to happen': Loose horses seized from Limerick roundabout

A number of horses were seized from Groody Roundabout

A NUMBER of loose horses have been seized following an early-morning operation in the Castletroy area of the city.

Several motorists contacted the Limerick Leader this Wednesday expressing concern that the horses which were loose and on the Groody Roundabout could move onto the public road and cause an accident.

“It was an accident waiting to happen, there were five or six of them,” said one angry driver who passed by the roundabout during rush hour.

Gardai attended the scene and it’s understood the animals were seized by council workers who are making enquiries as to their ownership.

The seizure of the horses this Wednesday follows the seizure of several other horses across the city over the past week.

A female horse, described as ‘aged’, was seized at Delmege Park, Moyross on Tuesday while three other horses  – two female and one male – were seized at Riverside Park, Dock Road last Friday.

Limerick City and County Council says the seized horses will be disposed of if they are not claimed by their owners.
