Church raid ...on holiest day of year
NOT even a church is sacred at the holiest time of year for the increasingly callous criminals operating in north Kerry.
Masked raiders hit a new low when they smashed their way into Causeway parish church on Easter Sunday night with a pickaxe and sledgehammer.
"People here are very upset by what happened. Once upon a time a church would even have been considered off limits by criminals – but not any more," Causeway and Ballyduff parish priest Fr Brendan Walsh said.
