EARLIER today, Gardaí in Limerick were investigating a reported burglary at a McDonald’s restaurant in the city in which a digger was used.
The burglary reportedly happened at around 2.50am on Tuesday morning at the McDonald’s at Castletroy Shopping Centre.
The photograph displayed below which was captured by a passer-by this morning shows the significant damage done to the front of the premises.

Following the burglary, Gardaí sealed off the area pending a forensic examination and the people involved in the raid fled the scene of the crime when they understood authorities were en route.
The use of a digger for crime echos the looting of a Lidl in Jobstown in Tallaght performed by nine men on March 2nd.
While the demolition of the local supermarket stunned and scared residents of the area, Lidl showed they were able to have a laugh about it following the appearance of several Lidl-themed floats at St. Patrick's parades around the country last weekend.

The genius behind the Lidl Ireland Twitter account seems to have struck gold again with their sense of humour.
Following the digger colliding with McDonald's earlier today, the Lidl account tweeted a very tongue-in-cheek 'hope you're ok hun' which cracked up more than a few people on the social media site.
@McDonalds Hope you're okay hun x
