Photo Clive WassonA local company is helping farmers to beat the scourge of trailer thefts on their farms.Raphoe based firm Temple Trailers has teamed up with the Donegal IFA and An Garda Siochana in a crime prevention initiative to better protect farmers and their property.The joint scheme, which has been running successfully for 2 years in Donegal involves farmers marking their equipment such as trailers, tractors, quads and tools, etc, with a unique identifier number. This number is stencilled onto the equipment to warn thieves that their property is marked as well as being marked indelibly into the metal and also marked secretly in other ways.Temple Trailers will now be offering a service for IFA members that means if they buy a trailer from them they will mark the trailer with their IFA identifier code before the farmer collects it.Local Crime Prevention Officer Sgt. Paul Wallace praised the firm for their assistance.He said “It is important that local communities take an active part in reducing the vulnerability of local people in any way they can and I applaud Temple Trailers for their foresight. This will be a valuable service for local famers and is another tool in the prevention of theft.” Local IFA County Chairman PJ McMonagle welcomed the service.He said “Temple Trailers are a very important local business for the farming community and it is great to see them take the lead in protecting their customers. Stephen and Austin have always provided a great service for farmers and this is another example of how we can all work together and try to deter thieves who are always very active on farmyards.”DONEGAL COMPANY IS HELPING FARMERS TO LEAVE THIEVES ‘TRAILING’ was last modified: February 2nd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:donegalGardaiRaphoeTEMPLE TRAILERSthieves
Washington DC: A top Trump administration official says that the famous inscription on the Statue of Liberty welcoming immigrants into the country is about “people coming from Europe” and that America is looking to receive migrants “who can stand on their own two feet.” The comments on Tuesday from Ken Cuccinelli, the acting director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services, came a day after the Trump administration announced it would seek to deny green cards to migrants who seek Medicaid, food stamps, housing vouchers or other forms of public assistance.

Beto O’Rourke, a Democratic presidential candidate. The administration’s proposed policy shift comes as President Donald Trump is leaning more heavily into the restrictive immigration policies that have energized his core supporters and were central to his 2016 victory.
