Shocking arson at Ballybane playground

Galway Daily news Shocking arson at Ballybane playground

A newly installed bit of equipment at a playground in Ballybane was only there a few days when it was destroyed in an act of mindless vandalism.

The basket swing at the playground in Coillte Mhuirlinne, Ballybane was installed last Friday, but hardly lasted more than two days before falling victim to apparent arson.

Galway City Council said that the swing was found burned last Sunday, December 19.

“It is the children alone that lose out on a safe way to play outdoors at Christmas because of this mindless act,” the city council said on facebook.

“Please help to protect and respect public amenities by being vigilant and reporting such acts if witnessed.”
