An article published in the Irish Independent yesterday shows that in the last 12 months there has been a 4% rise in reported residential burglaries. €27.6m worth of goods were stolen from Irish homes in the past year. Statistics also show the most likely entry point for a burglar is through a front or back door.           

As a result of this, Gardaí released a five-point checklist to help people reduce the chances of burglars entering their homes.

The five simple tips are:

1. Secure all doors and windows

2. Light up your home and use timer switches on lights for when you’re out

3. Store keys safely and away from windows and letterboxes

4. Record details of valuables and don’t keep large cash amounts at home

5. Use your alarm, even when you’re at home
