Locals from the south Longford village of Newtowncashel are up in arms this afternoon (Tuesday) after vandals destroyed two hand crafted sculptures overnight.

The remains of the wooden carvings, dating back 20 years or more, were found by residents earlier today in what has been described by Tidy Towns officials as a “mindless piece of vandalism”.

Gardai have also confirmed an investigation has been launched.
