Somebody did what in Paul Galvin's GAA club's sink?
A bizarre and disgusting attack on the north Kerry GAA club that Paul Galvin plays for has shocked the local community in Lixnaw.
There is probably not a GAA club in the country that hasn’t had to deal with some level of vandalism. Young lads and lots of free time, especially in the summer, can be a bad mix. Small bits of none-too-clever graffiti and maybe a broken window is usally the extent of it though.
Sadly that wasn’t the case in Lixnaw over the weekend when some people decided to vandalise the local GAA club. The club, where Kerry star Galvin plays hurling, suffered a bizarre attack, one that culminated in somebody defecating into a sink in the dressing room.
As well as that very unwelcome gift the invaders also smashed 14 windows, threw some paint around and tried to set fire to one of the dugouts.
The Irish Daily Star carries quotes from club chairman Sean Flaherty who was baffled by the incident.
“We just can’t make any sense out of why anyone would want to do this,” he said. “It was a vicious and vile attack on the people of Lixnaw.”
The club estimate that it will cost €10,000 to repair the damage caused.
