Finn Harps FC to report vandalism of toilets to An Garda Siochana

Finn Harps are appealing to the general public for information after Finn Park was broken into last week and the toilets were vandalised.

Stewards discovered the damage to the portacabin as they were preparing the ground prior to Harps’ SSE Airtricity League Division One clash with Galway FC on Saturday night.

The portacabin, which is divided into male and female toilets, sits on the terrace side of the ground on the Chestnut Road in Ballybofey.

It was closed for Saturday night’s fixture and no estimation of the damage caused is available yet.

Aidan Campbell, a Finn Harps board member, said last night the club will report the damage to An Garda Siochana this morning, Monday.

“This was vandalism of the worst kind and it serves no purpose,” he said.

“The toilets were ransacked with the dividing wall between the male and female sections battered down. The damage was incredible and just showed raw aggression.”

Campbell said that the board of the Ballybofey could will discuss ways of further securing the ground in future.

“We’d like to hear from anyone who might have any information” he said. “It’s a real shame that this has happened as Finn Harps FC is something that is there for the community as whole.”

Anyone with information is asked to contact Finn Harps FC on (074) 9130070.

Harps drew 1-1 with Galway FC with Paul McVeigh scoring the equalising goal to stay on top of Division One after four games.
