On Saturday 26th October Balbriggan Garda station held a Property Marking Day which aims to combat property theft and assist in the identification and return of stolen property.  A tungsten carbide property marking machine is used to stamp a pattern of dots into the selected item, compatible with materials ranging from steel and aluminium to plastic.

People were invited to bring along items that they wanted marked with their Eircode.  Everything can be marked from wood, brass,  except ceramics.  Among the many people who had their property marked, Gary Tolan from St Patrick’s Brass and Reed Band brought along his musical instruments which he had marked with his Eircode.

Eircodes can be marked onto farm equipment, garage and garden tools, power tools, computers and electrical devices, many mobile phones and tablets, equestrian equipment, golf clubs, musical instrument cases, bicycles, and much more.
