Anger as Roscommon Tidy Towns picnic table vandalised

Roscommon Tidy Towns has expressed its disgust that a decorative picnic table in the town has been badly vandalised.

The tidy towns group has posted images on Facebook that show a blue picnic table in the green at the entrance to the Spinney damaged in recent days.

The Facebook post suggests that a decorative flowerpot was used to smash through the centre of the table causing significant damage to the table.


The incident of vandalism follows ongoing concerns over anti-social behaviour at Roscommon Abbey after stone crosses from the 1800s and older were damaged recently and repeated calls for CCTV to be installed at the Abbey.
