Thomastown GAA club are waking up to a shocking scene this morning.
The club have posted photos to their official Facebook page showing goal posts smashed and one of the pitches at the club torn up with tire tracks.
“We had unwelcome visitors to grennan last night”, reads the post.
“All the selfless work that goes into maintaining the place, undone in no time by brainless thugs.”
Club chairman Ger Walsh told KCLR he received a phone call on Friday night to say that people had driven a jeep back and forth over their main pitch.
Heavy rains in recent days also meant that the grounds were much softer.
Disgraceful carry on
The incident was spotted by a club member at the grounds last night.
“He was going down to go training last night”, said Walsh in speaking to KCLR news this morning.
“When they turned on the lights they found a jeep in the middle of the pitch and they could see some people just hanging around.”
“When they came over they jumped into the jeep and sped away, back out through the gates. They had opened the gates to come into the pitch.”
“They saw the number one pitch – they were just going around doing wheelies on it.
“It’s all tore up at the moment. It’s disgraceful carry on.”
