An appeal for information has been launched after a Laois shop was broken into overnight.
Parklane Interiors in Portarlington, owned by Cathy Rogers and Mary Slevin, was the victim of an attack.
Taking to Facebook this morning, Cathy’s son Craig, launched an appeal for anyone with information about what happened to come forward.
He said: “My Mother Cathy Rogers and Mary Slevin shop, Parklane Interiors in Portarlington, was broken into last night.
“Whoever it was left a nice blood trail. If anyone in the area notices someone with a badly cut hand over the next day or two maybe ask some questions and pass on the info.
“Local Business doing their best to survive don’t deserve this carry on. Any shares would be appreciated. Thanks.”
Back in 2017, Parklane Interiors celebrated 10 years in business.
Cathy and Mary worked for years in KWS prior to it closing down and they opened Parklane Interiors – stocking every item of household furniture you could possibly think of.
Beds, mattresses, rugs, soft furnishings, giftware, pictures, mirrors and the “largest selection of lamps in the midlands”.
Initially they had a premises in the centre of town – but for the best part of the last seven years they’ve been on the Link Road, right beside SuperValu, with ample parking at the front and back.
Anyone with any information is asked to contact Gardai.
