The hole in the Millennium Bridge was done with a drill, as far as I know. Read fifth paragraph.
Vandalism of cow art on Dublin streets is 'symptom of wider malaise'
The Dublin city manager has deplored the vandalism of fibreglass cows which led to their removal from the capital's streets.
Mr John Fitzgerald said it was disappointing that the 10 cows, which are part of an international art exhibition, could not be left on the streets. Vandals destroyed several of the exhibits.
"It's a symptom of a wider malaise that needs to be tackled by us as a society by asking ourselves what levels of tolerance do we want and then doing something about it," he said.
Mr Fitzgerald said acts of vandalism, littering, public drinking and other forms of anti-social behaviour had worsened in the past five years.
In recent days, a vandal bored a small hole in the walkway of the Millennium Bridge, he said.
"The message has to go out that while this kind of behaviour might represent good fun for someone at 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning, it is a problem that costs money and ruins the environment," he added.
