Beautiful Barley Harbour here in Newtowncashel, a popular location amongst locals and tourists alike, was recenly targeted by vandals.
Over the weekend numerous tracks were left in the grass, along with two road signs; a stop sign and a sign for the Corlea Trackway Visitor Centre in Kenagh.
The damaged grass will recover but the more worrying thing is the removal of the stop sign from a road junction.

The Newtowncashel Committee of the P.T.A.A. would like to thank everyone who contributed to their recent Church Gate Collection.
