Strong local condemnation has been voiced following the weekend vandalism of a defibrillator located at the Tax Office building in Market Street in Monaghan Town. The defibrillator – one of a number of the potentially life-saving devices located at public buildings, community facilities and business locations in the town – was damaged in the early hours of Sunday morning. Monaghan Co Council said that it had removed the damaged device for repair and while it would be replaced this could take up to two weeks. The incident was condemned by Fianna Fáil Co Councillor and Municipal District member Raymond Aughey, who said that the people of the town were shocked and appalled that such an important piece of medical equipment would be chosen as a target for vandalism.
