And they have advised people who have any concerns about a trades person or company offering a service or goods to contact Cahir Community Garda Unit which will check whether they are bona fide.
Sgt. Ray Moloney said they were contacted by Cllr Andy Moloney to check out an email from a firm with a Dublin address offering the Covid-19 fumigation service . The gardai found it was bogus.
