Acts of vandalism in Clondalkin last week led to three semi-mature trees, which had been planted under the N81 Cycle Scheme, being set ablaze and snapped in half, writes Rachel Cunningham.

Planted recently, in May 2021, the destruction occurred to two deciduous and one coniferous tree on the cycle route towards the Blessington Road section.

The trees were situated along the 600m stretch of the N81 between Fortunestown to Killinarden Cycle Scheme, which was established to provide road safety, improve cycle infrastructure and to make the landscaping more appealing.

The council has stated that it will assess where to replant three new trees and examine the recent vandalism.
