There appears to have been an eggstaordinary eggstravaganza of egg-throwing across county Meath if the reaction tour story yesterday about teen thugs being caught on CCTV after bombarding a Romanian family’s home in Ashbourne with eggs.

So far we have had reports of similar incidents in Betystown where Susan O’Neill told us her car and house had eggs fired at them last week.

Dunboyne where Pieternel V Valen posted on the local noticeboard, ‘Someone will recognise them…I don’t know to feel sorry for them or not …in what universe is it OK to do such a thing.. for kids to think it’s OK. I’ve had my car egged and floured 2 days before Christmas….it damaged my engine and wrecked my car completely. I had a fair idea of who the boys were …unfortunately no CCTV . I don’t think these kids realise what damage and stress they are causing. So there must be something wrong with them….hence the me feeling sorry for them’

And in Navan, a woman contacted us to say her friend’s house on Limekiln estate opposite the hospital had eggs hurled at it recently.

Chickens will certainly come home

to roost when the culprits are caught and they will definitely be left with egg on their face if named and shamed in court.

If there is anyone else with an eggciting tale of egg-throwing get in touch
