A local GAA club has hit out at Louth County Council for removing and breaking one of their good luck posters from the roundabout in Seatown yesterday.

Ahead of their Leinster JFC final appearance against St Brigid’s of Offaly in Drogheda on December 8th, Dundalk Young Irelands have been busy decking out the area in their famous green and black colours and have been requesting local businesses from support.

One good luck poster, sponsored by The Pet Centre, was erected in Seatown but it was removed and broken last night with the club highlighting the issue on social media.

They said: “Local authorities promote the interest of your local community. Not in @louthcoco they don’t! They remove & break good luck posters.”

Local councillor John McGahon, who lives nearby, said he was “extremely disappointed” by the council’s decision to remove and then break the poster.

He said it was “an over the top act.”
