Community Alert – Suspect Tradesmen

We received the following message from a resident regarding tradesmen calling to her mother’s house in Cabinteely

“I was in the house and heard my mother answer the door. I could vaguely hear her saying no thanks a few times. I was on my way out to the door when she closed it. Some lad in his late twenty’s/early thirty’s in a royal blue t-shirt (who said he was laying tar in a garden up the road) was telling her he noticed the gutters were in a bad way and did she want them cleaned? (gutters are only recently cleaned).
She said no but he was asking did she not even want to know the price? She said no. He was quite persistent but she said no. I couldn’t see what van/car he was in because he walked up the road.
Just letting you know in case you’d like to make people in the area aware after unsavoury people around last year being pushy with vulnerable people. We live near killart”

These guys are very persistent and often claim to be cleaning gutters or driveways. Please alert elderly and vulnerable neighbours.
