Some of the information signs erected in the Ballincollig Regional Park for the benefit of us all, young and old, have been stolen in recent weeks. The signs have been specifically targeted and those responsible have come with the proper tools to remove them from the frames. As we try to do our bit and stay home to save lives, others have seen the lockdown as an opportunity to steal from an amenity that gives enjoyment to so many.
The signs were made for Ballincollig Tidy Towns and contain not only the BTT logo but have specific markings on them so are easily identifiable. The Gardai have been notified and are treating it very seriously. Should those who stole the signs wish to return them without fear of prosecution, it would be advisable to hand them in somewhere or return them to the Regional Park.
If anyone has any information with regard to the above please contact the Gardai immediately.
