Vandalism Alert

Rooskey residents and the many volunteers have carried out great work recently with their lovely flower displays to enhance our village. Unfortunately many of these flower arrangements were pulled down over recent nights. Please be on the lookout for any incidents of vandalism in Rooskey village, and report to the Gardai.
