A Killarney councillor has said the full wrath of the law should be brought upon the perpetrators who have been targeting post offices in Kerry.

Fianna Fáil councillor Niall Kelleher was speaking in light of three break-ins which occurred in the county within five days.

Overnight, the post office and shop in Glenflesk were broken into, resulting in damaged property and a number of items being stolen.

Last Friday, an attempted armed robbery took place in New Street Post Office in Killarney when a man entered the business armed with a shotgun, threatened staff and demanded money.

Gardaí are also investigating a burglary at Headford Post Office, near Killarney, which occurred at 11.30pm on Thursday.

Garda investigations are ongoing in all three break-ins.
