Minister condemns damage to Kilkenny War Memorial

The Minister for Culture, Heritage and the Gaeltacht says she was very saddened to hear of recent vandalism to Kilkenny’s World War 1 memorial.

The Soldier in Repose monument in the Peace Park was vandalised last week, having only been built and unveiled last summer.

Minister Josepha Madigan has released a statement condemning what happened.

She says we as a country have to continue to “show maturity and understanding” when it comes to Ireland’s history in the world wars.
