Fire service called after equipment at Keady play park set alight

Vandals have set equipment alight at a play park in Keady this evening (Wednesday).

The fire service have been called to an incident at the children’s play area on the Glen Road around 7pm.

The park has been the target of vandals in the past and Keady councillor Darren mcNally has blasted those responsible for tonight’s incident.

“It was hard work to get such a fantastic facility to Keady,” he said.

“It’s heartbreaking that some seem to think it’s fun to vandalise equipment; the people these action affect are local families and their children.

“I would ask those involved in this behaviour to desist immediately.”
