Fans rock Joe Dolan statue

ADORING fans have rocked Joe Dolan's memorial statue to its foundations, leaving Westmeath County Council with no option but to remove and reinforce the bronze replica.

The statue, erected in 2008, was removed from Mullingar and brought to a foundry in Dublin yesterday, where essential reinforcement works will be completed in two weeks.

"It became loose as a consequence of people literally getting up on the statue," said Westmeath County Council chairman Michael Dollard.
