Two men imprisoned for theft of €2,000 trailer in Tarbert

Two men have been sentenced to 3 months imprisonment for the theft of a trailer worth €2,000 in Tarbert.

Ian Lockyer of 47 Lacey Avenue, Templemore Co Tipperary and John McInerney of 4 Clos Odhrain, Toomevara Co Tipperary appeared before Listowel District Court recently.

The incident took place on the 10th of December 2018 in Chapel Street, Tarbert.


A neighbour alerted Gardaí after seeing the men trying to hitch the double-axle trailer.

Judge David Waters considered a suspended sentence but said as the men were on bail at the time of the incident, they couldn’t escape a custodial sentence.
