During what is usually a busy night for An Garda Síochána, the window of a garda patrol car was smashed in Portlaoise.

The incident happened around midnight on Halloween night Tuesday, October 31.

A brick was thrown from a field at the patrol car in O'Moore Place, Portlaoise while gardaí were dealing with a public order incident. 

No one was arrested following the incident. 

Elsewhere, Laois Fire Service had three callouts by 7pm on Halloween night. 

Their policy was not to put out a fire unless there was a risk to life. 

Laois Offaly Gardaí investigate two burglaries in estate.
