Windows on 11 houses and three machines were broken during a break-in to a Portlaoise building site over the weekend.

Conniberry Way – a development at the back of Knockmay Road – was broken into over the weekend with one house burgled and windows on 11 more broken. There was also a window smashed on an onsite meeting room as well as on two diggers and a tractor.
