An acrimonious turf war has escalated between two neighbouring areas in Cork after a welcome sign was dismantled and stolen last night.
A sign reading ‘Welcome to Togher’ had been vandalised during the week following complaints from local residents that the sign had been wrongly erected in the Wilton area and last night it was stolen.
The complaint regarding the placement of the sign has been rebuked by the community group who erected the sign who consulted maps and council officials before stating they are adamant it was in the correct place.
Last night, the boundary feud heightened, when the sign in question was taken from its resting place, leaving just two black pillars standing alone in the grass this morning.
The sign had been placed along Sarsfield Road, where residents maintain is within the Wilton area in Cork.
Garda Press Office have said they are not investigating the theft of the sign as it has not been reported to them as a case.
The Press Office said if the council decide to make a report, they will then be happy to investigate.
