“At one point she heard a noise and looked up to see another car drive off. She later discovered that her car window had been smashed and her handbag taken,” said Sergeant Ber Leetch.

The woman gave a description of the (suspect) car which which drove off in the direction of Garryspillane.

“If anyone was in that area at the time and saw anything suspicious would they please contact gardai in Kilmallock or gardai at any garda station,” added Sgt Leetch.
