St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church in Limerick fell victim to a burglary on Saturday night. Intruders forcefully entered the church and managed to break open an offertory box. The contents, presumably including cash donations by churchgoers, were stolen by the thieves. The community is disheartened by this act of crime, targeting a place of worship. The investigation is ongoing, and authorities are working to identify and apprehend the perpetrators responsible for this offense, while the churchgoers and locals are left in shock over this unfortunate incident.
