Oliver Gibson has "restored Dancer back to his proud self".

A wooden sculpture that was recently damaged in a local forest park dedicated to the memory of a five-year-old child has been restored.

In a social media post, Erica's Fairy Forest in Cootehill paid thanks to Oliver Gibson, who replaced the head of the wooden deer sculpture and "restored Dancer back to his proud self".

It was thought that the wooden deer had its head removed in an act of vandalism.

However, in an online post, Cootehill Chamber noted that Oliver says it was a case of wear and tear on the carving originally created by Kieran Cosgrove.

Erica's Fairy Forest was created by Erica Ní Draighneain's parents to honour and celebrate her life, and Dancer will be ready in the coming days for children to play and interact with.
