Racist graffiti in Demesne


A SWASTIKA symbol was spraypainted onto a tree in Santry Demesne last week.

The offensive symbol was graffitied on by vandals and is proving difficult to remove with specialist chemicals.

"To be fair, the council were on it straight away. The difficulty is removing it without damaging the tree," local councillor Justin Sinnot said.

In a separate incident, the toilets in the playground in Santry Park in the demesne were also damaged when vandals kicked holes in the walls.
