A new text alert system will be launched in mid-Tipp tomorrow night.

It’s part of efforts to tackle crime in the Upperchurch – Drombane area following a number of break-ins.

The crime prevention officer in the Tipperary Garda Division – Sgt Tom Dwyer – will be among those attending the launch.

Chairman of the organising committee Michael Bourke says the text alert system works well if people get involved.
