Two local graveyards hit by vandals

Two local graveyards have fallen victim to vandalism over recent days.

Gravestones in the Poor Clare’s Cemetery in Ballyjamesduff were knocked and broken earlier this week – a Garda investigation is underway.

Meanwhile, it’s believed items were stolen off graves in the Latlorcan graveyard in Monaghan on Wednesday.

It’s thought the incident took place between 1 and 4 in the afternoon.
