Kilkenny Gardaí are investigating reports of an incident on the Hebron Road.
A post on social media claimed that three children had been stopped in the Ossory Park area by the occupants of a grey transit van who tried to force them into the vehicle.
Luckily this horrific attempt failed and the children got away and are safe in the bosom of their families.
Gardaí were alerted and say there is an investigation underway. Please be careful and extra vigilant.
