Mum installs Fairco burglar-proof windows to protect family home
Sharon Brennan from Dunboyne, Co Meath installed Fairco burglar-proof windows after a spate of burglaries in her area left her living in fear and unable to sleep at night.
With three children under the age of 10, Sharon felt she had to do something after seeing a break-in at a neighbour’s house last August. “We have no active police station here,” she told the Irish Independent.
“Our nearest full-time station is Ashbourne, which is a hell of a trip if you are to drive it.
“I remember spotting people out in our front garden one night and more people stealing a car a few doors up.”
Costing more than €10,000, she admits it was not a cheap purchase but added that it was worthwhile so that she could rest easy every night. She also invested €2,500 in gates and another €1,000 in a lighting and CCTV system. “I only had four locks on my door but now I have 16. The glass in it is burglar proof,” said Ms Brennan.
“I think I can sleep a little easier now,” she said.
