Information sought on vandalism of Carlow Rehab centre’s vegetable garden

The polytunnel was destroyed on Monday

A recent act of vandalism has destroyed the vegetable garden of a Carlow care centre.

The polytunnel of the Rehab Centre on Killeshin Road was damaged late Monday evening, with every panel spliced open.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Carlow Garda Station.

Meg Mc Ginnty is Rehab’s Community Services Manager.

She says some of their service users put years of work into the garden;

“During the pandemic we had one service user who was coming in religiously to maintain the tunnel and the gardens. We had beautiful vegetables growing in it- carrots, tomatoes and cabbages. He ended up putting so many hours and years of his life into cultivating what was a beautiful garden. It was created and maintained by our service users, so all their hard work has gone awry with its destruction.”
