Two engines were reported taken at Cahir Pier, a spot popular with tourists, while the third theft occurred at Burke's Island.
“It’s prevalent around the country, and it has happened on Lough Corrib, but it’s the first time it’s happened here," said local angler Denis Kelleher about the thefts. "It’s something I had hoped would stay away from the area."
Kelleher noted that with only one road in and out of both areas, installation of CCTV might prove a deterrent to any future burglaries - though local councillor Michael Burke raised concerns about how such a system would be managed.
