Reports this evening that the memorial plaque to Free State Minister Kevin O'Higgins, which was unveiled last year by Taoiseach Enda Kenny at the spot where he was assassinated by the IRA in 1927, has been vandalised.
From Barry Ward's (FG) Twitter:
Disgusted to see that the Kevin O'Higgins memorial plaque was vandalised last week. @dlrcc has ordered a replacement.
O'Higgins has a deservedly controversial reputation, being allegedly responsible for up to 77 executions of Republicans during the Civil War. But I would hope that all reasonable people, whatever their politics, would not support the desecration of his memorial plaque.
