Independent councillor Nick Killian has described a playground in Ratoath as ‘ A haven for anti social behaviour’ after pictures emerged on social media of wanton damage done to two pieces of equipment there.


The photographs below, from the Ratoath Notice Board, show the remnants of a fire set inside the tunnel of a children’s slide.


One source told Meath Live, ‘This is vandalism pure and simple, the kids enjoy using the slide and some gouger has opted to try and destroy it and spoil their fun.’
