General Election candidate posters vandalised

A number of election posters for a Sligo/Leitrim candidate have been vandalised.

Posters belonging to Fine Gael Sligo Councillor and General Election candidate, Thomas Walsh, have been defaced between Taylor’s Cross and Ballyfarnon.

Gardaí in Ballymote are investigating the incident by viewing CCTV footage in the area, which is believed to have occurred between 10 and 12pm on Friday.

Speaking to OceanFM News, Councillor Walsh says whether or not someone agrees with a candidate, this isn’t how to deal with issues.
