Speaking to Echo.ie this morning Cllr Dermot Richardson said the mindless act of vandalism does not reflect the community, and he urged anyone who seen anything in the area to contact the Gardai immediately.

He said: “It’s only an extremely small minority of people who take part in this kind of thing, and in general people have integrated very well into Tallaght communities.

“We cannot have a minority of people victimising others, and I would urge anyone who seen anything overnight to contact their local reps and Gardai in Tallaght.”
