Efforts to return stray pony to owner

Pony found wandering on 'Mane' Street in Carrickmacross.

Local gardaí have launched an appeal to reunite a pony found stray in the middle of Carrickmacross earlier this morning with its owners.

The pony caused “havoc” wandering in busy morning traffic. But through the officer's SPUR of the moment intervention they managed to avoid what might have become an un-STABLE situation on the MANE street, protecting NEIGH-bours in the process.

In a post shared on social media, they said: “Gardaí in Carrickmacross have a pony in custody this morning. This chap was playing havoc with traffic on the Main Street. Thankfully he came quietly.”
