With Carrick-on-Shannon often left looking well below its best last Sunday mornings as a result of the previous night’s behavior, Supt Carolan added, “It is a major issue when we find public order and criminal damage and we will be looking over the coming weeks to put a response in place. It causes such difficulty for so many people who are working in a voluntary capacity. It is undoubtedly a small number of people who are responsible but it cannot go unchecked and we will be monitoring the situation.”
Police in Carrick-on-Shannon confirmed a large amount of cocaine was recovered in Carrick-on-Shannon on Friday last, June 24, by police from the western and northern regions.

A home built for property developer Robert Butler in Adare is back on the market, but this time its price has been slashed by €8.2m as it has failed to attract a buyer in three years.
When it first came on the market in 2008 with a price of €12m it was one of the most expensive properties ever to be put up for sale locally.
Now the eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom house on the grounds of Adare Manor estate is back on the market for a more modest €3.8m.
Several lavish properties in the picturesque village of Adare are now for sale with seven-figure price-tags, which have been greatly reduced from the boom years.
Another palatial home in the Adare Manor estate is also available for €2.5m.
But despite numerous viewings, the lure of their ornate decor, marble floors and expansive grounds has yet to pay dividends.
The two properties are among 19 houses in the 840-acre Adare Manor estate, which borders the famous golf club.
Des O’Malley, agent with Sherry FitzGerald O’Malley, said the drop in price is a symptom of the property market at present.
“Both represent extraordinarily good value and have held their value a lot more than other properties at the moment,” he told this newspaper.
The residence built by Sisk for Mr Butler is ‘Winterwood, The Demense’ - an eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom house on 2.8 acres of land.
It once attracted a bid of €10 million, however the sale did not go through, and it is now for sale through joint agents Sherry FitzGerald O’Malley and Knight Frank.
While Mr Butler lives in another residence in Adare, it is understood he has never moved into this house.
It is one of the largest houses to have been built on the estate with a staggering 1,579sq m (17,000sq ft) of living space.
