Lord Mayor condemns Vandalism of “Tree of Life” Sculpture

The Lord Mayor of Dublin, Tom Brabazon, has condemned an attack on the ‘Tree of Life’ sculpture in St Anne’s Park.

At this stage it’s not known precisely why or when this attack happened, but it appears to have been carried out overnight.

An accelerant was used in the attack.

Gardai are investigating the circumstances surrounding the incident.

“This is a beautiful sculpture enjoyed by adults and children alike, and I want to condemn this wanton act of vandalism in the strongest possible terms,” said the Lord Mayor. “It’s so sad to see something like this happen. I would appeal to anyone with any information to contact the Gardai.”

The ‘Tree of Life’ sculpture is 10 metres tall, took 3 years to complete and is a very popular feature of St Anne’s Park. The original tree is believed to be somewhere in the region of 200 years old.
