stolen trailer


A Kildare farmer has made an appeal for information after an expensive trailer was stolen from a farm near the Curragh.

A 5x10 Nugent trailer was purchased new from CM Plant Sales Ltd in Co Tyrone and had the company branding still on the sides.

The Kildare farmer's initials ‘AD’ are stamped on the trailer in several places and Newbridge Garda Station has been notified of the chassis number.

Anyone who has seen the trailer or can help with its recovery is asked to contact Newbridge Garda station on 045 431 212, reports the Irish Farmers Journal.

Meanwhile, cattle, trailers, quads and many more agricultural assets have been stolen from farms across rural Ireland in recent weeks.

Just last month a quad was stolen from a Co Meath farm.

And in Co Offaly, an 8x4 Ifor Williams trailer was taken from a farmyard in Killeigh.
