Headstone of Irish leader W T Cosgrave vandalised
THE headstone of W T Cosgrave, the first leader of the Irish Free State, has been damaged at a cemetery in Dublin.
Mr Cosgrave's headstone, along with around a dozen Victorian and pre-Victorian monuments, were vandalised at the Goldenbridge Cemetery in Inchicore, Dublin.
Former Taoiseach Liam Cosgrave, son of W T, visited the cemetery yesterday.
The trustee of the cemetery, Glasnevin Trust, said gardaí were investigating.
In 2014 vandals damaged headstones at the cemetery, including Mr Cosgrave's.
