As seen in the main picture, some of the flowers were ripped from pots and discarded on the ground.

“Absolutely DISGUSTED to see this mindless vandalism when opening up this morning.” the team of Longford Sports & Leisure centre posted. 

“Lots of people spend hours on the upkeep and development of the mall, to give to the people of Longford, one of the best public parks in the country. 

“Then some people in the community think this use of their energy is appropriate. If you have time and energy please use it in an appropriate manner, and not to destroy other people’s good work.”
