It gives me no great pleasure particularly when you witness all the joy and fun on a Saturday morning when Páirc Grattan is buzzing with over one hundred young boys and girls learning and taking part in our national games to report that there have been some acts of vandalism carried out at Páirc Grattan recently and one very dangerous one when the Gas-line was tampered with. We would ask everyone who uses Páirc Grattan to keep an eye out for anyone or anything suspicious and to contact any member of the committee immediately with your concerns. Let’s be security conscious.
