Children in one Donegal town have been warned that throwing eggs at property and vehicles could land them in trouble with gardaí after the home of an elderly woman was targeted at the weekend.
The warning was issued by Castlefinn
It has since emerged that another car and house were targeted and around €200 of damage was caused to another car.
Cllr Doherty has asked parents to make their children aware of the hurt caused by this kind of thing.
“I'm sure that the kids were only doing it for a laugh and didn't mean to cause any harm, but we can't have people feeling afraid in their own homes.”
He said the incidents are causing damage to property and this could bring those involved to the attention of gardaí.
“It’s causing damage to property which is criminal damage and the guards may want to speak to those people if it continues,” he said.
