The burglary occurred on Monday January 9th.

Online news publishers, and the Irish Mirror, have today reported that the victim was a well-known GAA player in Wexford. The man would be well-known in GAA circles.

In a Garda statement, they stated:

“Gardaí are investigating a burglary that occurred at a property in the Ballyboe area of Enniscorthy, on the evening of Monday January 9.”

Investigations are still ongoing and no arrests have been made at the time of writing.

Gardaí are investigating if the burglary is linked to a rise in a number of such incidents in the Enniscorthy area over the past several weeks. They are looking in particular for a black Audi estate car which they believe is also connected to a number of recent burglaries carried out in the Clonroche and Caim areas of Wexford.

Anyone with information about any of the incidents is encouraged to contact Enniscorthy Garda Station on 053 9242580 or their local garda station.
