Longford Women’s Link condemn “appalling” vandalism at centre

Longford Gardai are investigating the vandalism of polytunnels at the Women’s Link centre in the town.

It’s believed the damage, which consisted of over a dozen burn and slash marks, took place between 7.40pm and 10pm on Wednesday night.

In a Facebook post shared yesterday from the Ardnacassa centre, a spokesperson condemned the vandalism, and said they are “absolutely disgusted at the people who did this”.

The centre, which has remained open throughout the Covid-19 crisis in order to support people at risk of domestic violence, said they will continue to support women and children in crisis and urged shame on those who engage in destructive appalling behaviour.
