Report cold calling tradespersons

As we come to spring time people are looking at fixing up their garden or house and consider contracting a tradesperson to do the work. The Community Gardai have asked us to report cold calling tradespersons to them. As we know, sometimes such callers are actually checking out houses with a view to breaking in. The Gardai are taking a proactive approach by investigating such callers to establish whether they are legitimate or up to no good.

If a tradesperson calls to your door, do accept any flyer that they offer but do not employ them. Please then pass the flyer to us e.g. take a photo of it and email, and we will pass them onto the Community Gardai.

If you do wish to contact a tradesperson to do some work, use our Tradespersons page to find someone that has been used and recommended by residents.
