Dublin tops the chart when it when it comes to burglaries in Ireland.
Over the past decade, 41% percent of reported break-ins were in the capital, according to a new analysis.
The research, carried out by PhoneWatch, found an east-west divide with Louth, Kildare and Wicklow coming in behind Dublin with high burglary rates.
Kerry had the lowest burglary levels, with around one-in-19 properties burgled over the last decade.
Donegal and Mayo also had relatively lower rates.
The research found that nearly a quarter-of-a-million burglaries have been carried out in Ireland in the past ten years.
PhoneWatch Managing Director Eoin Dunne said: “While we’re seeing a welcome reduction in burglaries in recent years, the reality is it remains all too common in Ireland.
"By examining the figures over an extended period we can see the true scale and impact of burglary in Ireland."
The study found “significant variations” in the number of burglaries year-on-year; however, 2018 saw the lowest number with data from the first three months of this year suggesting a continuing decline.
According to the data, one-in-five homes in Dublin have been burgled over the past decade – compared to one-in-seven around the country.
Tallaght Garda Station recorded the highest number in the country; however, it also experienced the largest fall with a 58% decrease since 2009.
Four of the five busiest stations for burglaries were in the capital with the fifth in Waterford.
