A number of ornaments on graves have been vandalised in a shocking act of anti-social behaviour at Rahoon Cemetery.
Galway City Council says that the vandalism occured between 16.30 yesterday and 08.30 this morning (Friday).
It is still unknown exactly how many graves are affected as the ornaments have been broken on the walkways.
However, the Council says that between ten and twenty graves appear to be affected.
These are all located in the new Section of Rahoon Cemetery in Section X and Galway City Council is working with the Gardai in relation to this matter. Anyone with information is asked to contact Mill Street or Salthill Garda station.
