Plans are well-advanced for the provision of a CCTV system in the town of Ballaghadereen, and cameras could be in place by next Easter.
That's according to local businessman Pat Towey, a member of the Town Team in Ballaghadereen.
It's believed the CCTV cameras will be of assistance to local Gardai in investigating crime in the town - such as the vandalism caused over the weekend to the Christmas tree in Ballaghadereen.
Wiring from the tree was pulled out and the fencing around it was damaged in the early hours of Sunday morning - shortly after the lights were officially switched on, on Saturday evening.
The installation of a CCTV system in Ballaghadereen will cost in the region of €60,000, and will see cameras being erected at 13 locations around the town according to Pat Towey.
