250K Of Whiskey Stolen In Carlingford

An appeal has been launched on Thursday after a consignment of whiskey worth €270,000 was stolen in Co Louth.

Gardaí at Carlingford said they are investigating the theft of “Finnegan Whiskey”, which was stolen from a container at a yard, owned by Cooley distillery, in Carlingford on Saturday February 5.

It is believed a gang broke into the yard and linked up the container to a truck before making their getaway.

Finnegan Whiskey is not available on the Irish market. The label on the front of the bottle is in the Irish language while the label on the rear is in the French language (expect the actual words Finnegan Finest Irish Whiskey) each front label consists of a picture of a Neolithic stone figure.

The bottles are all 70cl and were stocked in brown cardboard boxes labelled “Finnegan Irish Whiskey” and the words “Uisce Beatha”

Anyone with information or any person who has been offered this product for sale is requested to contact the Gardaí at Carlingford 042- 9373102, the Garda Confidential Line 1-800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
