Dis­ap­pointed and dis­grace­ful were two of the most com­mon word in the vil­lage last Thursday morn­ing when lo­cals dis­cov­ered that the old car painted in St. Mochtas colours and parked in a space not ef­fect­ing any­one was de­lib­er­ately burnt the night be­fore.

Thank­fully no one was in­jured or hurt buy it is very dis­ap­point­ing that this should hap­pen in amid the cel­e­bra­tions that most peo­ple are join­ing in with the Mochtas suc­cess story this sea­son. Any­one with any in­for­ma­tion should con­tact the Gardai.
