Donegal had a 5.75% burglary rate over the period 2010-2018, which means that one premises in 17 – whether house or business – was burgled during that time, according to new research by Phonewatch.

However, Donegal is still one of the safest counties, well below the national average burglary rate of 13.34%, and nearly three-quarters down on burglary blackspot Dublin’s rate of 19.97%.

Dublin’s high rate means that one in five premises were burgled during the test period in the nation’s capital.
