Property marking event today

Gardaí have been rolling out the initiative across Cavan and Monaghan.

Gardaí are holding a property marking event in Kilcogy today.

It's the latest such event to be held across the local Garda division in a bid to reduce thefts.

A marking machine is used to print the owner's Eircode onto a piece of property to make it easier to identify.

Garden tools, trailers, bikes and other products can be printed.

Today's event is taking place in Kilcogy village from 2pm-4pm. People are asked to bring their products and their Eircode.
