A LARGE knife was thrown into the playground of a Dublin creche this week.
Horrified staff at the New Life Centre at Our Lady Immaculate Church in Darndale, Dublin 17 discovered the weapon in the children’s outdoor play area on Tuesday.
They also say that a number of dangerous items have been thrown into the playground in the past couple of weeks.
The creche said on its Facebook page: “Over the past number of weeks, we have had empty glass beer bottles smashed in the garden and also found a syringe on another occasion.”
Joan McDonald, manager at the creche, told The Gazette she handed the knife over to gardai as soon as it was found.
None of the kids who attend the creche came in contact with the knife and no-one was harmed. Joan said because the playground backs on to a lane, it’s likely someone threw it in when they were going past.
