Louth County Council is facing a monumental embarrassment after an image was removed from the new World War 1 memorial in Dundalk to avoid legal proceedings.

Instead of being officially unveiled on Tuesday, the centrepiece of the large stone monument was covered by blue tarpaulin after workmen erased the image on Monday afternoon.
