Gardai are investigating the theft of nine kegs of beer from outside a Kilkenny city pub yesterday morning.

The kegs of beer were stolen from outside a pub on High Street in Kilkenny city early on November 1.

The burglar/burglars made off with the kegs after the public house had received a delivery, according to the Kilkenny People.

The thieves arrived outside the pub in a van, rapidly loading the pub's kegs into the vehicle before speeding off from High Street.

Gardai are appealing for anyone who was in the High Street area in the early hours of Tuesday morning, who may have seen either the kegs or any suspicious behaviour, to contact them at Kilkenny garda station on 056 7775000.
