An act of vandalism that occurred in the community grounds, near the Friary in Ballyhaunis, has angered the local community.
A public waste bin was uprooted in the grounds, earlier this week.
Ballyhaunis Community Council took to its Facebook page to condemn the incident, “One of the most important functions of the Community Council is our role as the community body on the Abbey Trust which holds the lease of the Friary and grounds for the community. Alongside other local groups and Mayo Co Council we are also part of the Abbey Partnership which oversees the management of this wonderful amenity. It’s with great anger that we see vandalism such as this in the grounds which offer recreational space to so many.”
