A group of anti social vandals have been blamed for wrecking the toilets at the Brandywell, the home of Derry City FC. The attack happened on Sunday night and a considerable amount of damage was caused to the toilet facilities and plumbing in the South End Stand.
Sanitary ware was smashed and pipes were ripped from the walls by the vandals, who have been branded anti-community thugs. The incident is the latest in a string of acts of vandalism in the area which have been condemned by Derry City Council.
The council’s Leisure Services Manager Jeffrey Ashe condemned the vandalism and told the Londonderry Sentinel that it was too early to estimate how much it would cost to repair the widespread damage.
“This is the latest in a number of sporadic acts of vandalism in the Brandywell Stadium. On this occasion significant damaged has been caused to the toilet facilities, however it is too early to determine what repair costs will be,” Ashe said.
Derry closed out the season by winning the FAI Cup against St. Patrick’s Athletic in the Aviva Stadium
