10 July 2015 No Comments by The Northern Standard

“It is a shame and an absolute disgrace” – the forthright comments of Monaghan Municipal District spokesperson Bernie McElvaney to the Northern Standard this week summated the public reaction to the wanton vandalism of flower planting in the Dublin Street area of Monaghan Town on Wednesday, June 24 last. Ms McElvaney pointed out that the flower arrangements had only that day been made up and put on public display to enhance the appearance of the town for the benefit of local businesses and visitors. “Considerable money and time was spent by the Municipal District on this initiative to improve the appearance of the town, and it was sad to see the lack of respect shown by those responsible for this mindless act of vandalism,” she stated.
