Or unfair statistical analysis (see comments).
The number of burglaries reported in Tallaght is large compared with the number of reports in the rest of the State, with 922 offences investigated by gardaí in the area last year.
That figure was almost 50 per cent higher than the second-worst affected area of Blanchardstown, where 628 burglary offences were recorded.
And it was close to three times the number of burglary offences recorded in Waterford station, which, at 377, was the third-highest nationally last year.
Take that, the Blanch.
