Quad vandalism returns to Vinegar Hill

By Dan Walsh

Cllr John O’Rourke raised concerns about quad bike damage on Vinegar Hill where a special place of historical tourism is being ‘degraded by louts’ at the September meeting of Enniscorthy Municipal District Council held in the Riverside Park Hotel under Covid-19 government restrictions.

VINEGAR HILL… a special place of historical tourism

District Manager Ger Mackey told the members that the Council was aware of anti-social behaviour on Vinegar Hill and recent events are under investigation. Repairs to the damage is being done and there is a follow up with the parents of those responsible.

Cllr Kathleen Codd-Nolan had received complaints about the upkeep of the Peace Park and Mr Mackey admitted to maintenance issues during the summer.

Cllr Jackser Owens also mentioned the Peace Park and he heard reports of broken windows to houses on Irish Street. He also heard that people are seen climbing over the fence.

Mr Mackey responded to anti-social behaviour issues around the Peace Park and the Gardai have been given a key to carry out patrols during the hours when the park is locked up.
