"As Mayor of Drogheda, I am appalled that such mindless vandalism has occurred at Dominic's Park, Drogheda,”” said Mayor Michelle Hall. “The outdoor staff in Drogheda Borough Council work hard to maintain this beautiful green area along the Boyne Greenway. If anyone has witnessed this can they please contact An Garda Siochana”.

As part of combined climate action and community measures, Louth County Council heavily invest in planting trees, plants and foliage each year, which not only help enhance Louth’s natural beauty but also yield incredible benefits to residents and visitors.

“I don’t understand why someone would do this" said Elias Mlimbila, Assistant Parks Superintendent at Louth County Council, who planted the trees. “The mindless vandalism of these trees is to be condemned.”

Members of the public who witness vandalism of any kind are requested to report this to An Garda Síochána.
