NOT content with hurling a ringbuoy in the Slaney, vandals set it fire as well.

The ringbuoy was returned to Wexford Marinewatch by a member of the public who recovered it from the river.

'Not content with just throwing it in, the perpetrators also attempted to set it on fire - now rendering it useless, (it) cannot be used ever again,' said Frank Flanagan, from Wexford Marinewatch.

'Please remember a stolen ringbuoy is a stolen life and it could be one of your family or even one of your kids who needs this some day,' he said.
