Locals busy at work trying to remove graffiti before a funeral was due to take place at Christ Church, Celbridge earlier today.

GARDAÍ IN KILDARE are appealing to the public for information after a number of premises in Celbridge town were spray-painted on Wednesday night or early Thursday morning.

A number of locals and the caretaker of Christ Church in Celbridge were busy at work earlier trying to remove the graffiti before a funeral was due to take place there earlier today.

A garda spokesperson told TheJournal.ie that “a number of other premises in the centre of the town were also spray-painted”.

The culprits used a tag or symbol on all the work, so gardaí believe the graffiti was done by one or possibly two individuals.

Anyone with information are asked to contact gardaí in Celbridge on 01 6288222, the Garda Confidential line 1800 666 111 or any Garda Station.
