Roscommon club 'disgusted' over vandalism

Outside the St Faithleach's GAA club grounds in Roscommon.

A Roscommon GAA club has appealed for the public's help after its grounds were targeted by vandals at the weekend.

Extensive damage was caused to the dressing rooms and dugouts at St Faithleach's GAA club in Ballyleague, while a tractor was also vandalised. The grim discovery was made on the same day as the Longford-border club beat Fuerty 0-17 to 1-13 after extra-time to qualify for a Roscommon SFC semi-final against St Kevin's, Castlerea.

St Faithleach's said in a Facebook post: "Absolutely disgusted to be posting this. All the hard work that the ground staff and club members put in day in day out with very minimal budget. A lot of damage caused to our dressing room, tractor and dug outs.

"We would plead that anyone with any information on these scandalous acts please come forward and contact any club member or the Gardai.

"The power of social media and the strong community of Ballyleague and surrounding areas will work together so as that these thugs are apprehended for this."
