Longford GP office vandalised with graphic anti-abortion graffiti
Some of the messages were very disturbing.
The Longford Medical Centre at Leader House in Longford Town has been targeted with anti-abortion graffiti.
Photos from the scene, featured in the Longford Leader, show the front of the building covered in spray paint. The graffiti tags include messages such as "Pro-Choicer ageist Nazis were racist" and "We are being governed by criminals".
Other messages read "Abortion women die young" and "Media hided truth". Another read "Murder unborn Longford children €450/kill."
A statement from the Gardaí reports that no complaint has yet been made about the graffiti: "Gardaí have not received a complaint regarding an incident overnight at a premises at Deanscurragh, Co. Longford."
The Longford Medical Centre is currently closed.
The graffiti follows an incident last year where Sligo-Leitrim TD Tony McLoughlin's constituency office was defaced in a similar fashion.
Images from that scene showed the front of the office had been defaced with phrases like "Fine Gael Baby Killers," "Herods," and "Skum."
So disappointed to see this morning that my busy constituency office in #Sligo has been vandalised and defaced overnight. We live in a proud democracy and despite ones opinion on any referendum, this behaviour can never condoned. Gardai on site investigating criminal damage. pic.twitter.com/Y9DMfVnT90
