Gardaí in Kilkenny have issued a warning to all trampoline owners to tie them down properly after one went rogue on a busy commuter route close to Kilkenny city centre.

Despite warnings to ”batten down the hatches” Kilkenny Fire Service and gardaí were called out to the Castlecomer Road at the edge of the city and had to remain there for several hours until it was secured.

Gardaí said: “Gardai remain at the scene. The possibility of injury in so many ways was and is huge. Beware of poorly secured objects like trampolines and garden furniture being moved in these conditions.”

The road had to be closed off to traffic resulting in severe tailbacks, electricity to surrounding homes and business switched off as emergency services and ESB crews battled to remove the trampoline in severe winds.
