A week after the Tidy Towns results were published, one local group in Offaly, Walsh Island, has been hit by thieves. 

Gardai are investigating a plough which was stolen and belonged to Walsh Island Tidy Towns Group. It is understood that the plough was used for decoration and has been welded to the ground for ten years at Moore's Cross.

Gardai are appealing for anyone with information to come forward.

Walsh Island takes great pride in the Tidy Towns. To read what the Tidy Towns judges said about Walsh Island this year CLICK HERE.
