This service is live and has already proven to be of great benefit.

The text alert number is 065 908 0550 this should be saved on your phone and used to advise the Garda of any suspicious or criminal activity in the parish. The Garda will review the calls received and based on their judgement may send a text to the members of the Kilmihil Text Alert scheme to warn them to be aware and alert.

The text alert number is displayed on signposts throughout the parish and reminders are posted in the parish newsletter from time to time. Please make sure you and all your family have saved the number now so that you can easily access it in an emergency.

You can join the scheme  to receive alerts by signing up at the Post Office at any time. A minimum contribution of €5.00 is all that is required.
