Lights on Carrigaline to Crosshaven Walkway Vandalised

The Evening Echo had a story yesterday about how 88 solar powered lights on the Carrigaline to Crosshaven walkway had been vandalised on Wednesday the 14th of August. Each one was drilled out and destroyed as a result.

These lights between Kilnageary and Leary's Cross had only been installed last month in July.

The article goes on to say that the 88 of them were installed by a contractor so it must have cost several thousand Euro. The Council have now said that these won't be replaced.

The type of light is shown below. They are specially designed to put out light sideways to illuminate the surface of the path but not upwards. This is to prevent them interfering with wildlife which needs dark areas at night.

The full article can be seen on the Evening Echo website.
