Kildare Gardaí have issued a pre-Halloween warning to the public to be aware of the dangers of fireworks and the criminal penalties that apply.
A Garda spokesperson said: "Remember, fireworks contain explosive materials and are potentially very dangerous if misused, especially high hazard fireworks (such as bangers, rockets, roman candles, cake/batteries or shells).
"It is an offence to possess unlicensed fireworks (other than low hazard fireworks, such as party poppers, sparklers etc), with intent to sell or supply and a fine of up to €10,000 can apply.
"It is an offence to throw or direct any ignited firework at a person or property and a fine of up to €10,000 can apply."
Gardaí added: "Please keep safe this Halloween period."
