A bi-lingual sign has been vandalised on Enniskillen's Drumclay Link Road.

The sign was erected two months ago following reported rows in a private Council committee meeting over the placing of a fada on the o of Crannog Way.

The name Crannog Way was chosen to mark the archaeological site which was excavated between August 2012 and April 2013, delaying the opening of the road, which covered over the ancient site.

On Saturday, Sinn Féin MLA Phil Flanagan tweeted a photo of the sign before and after the Irish version had been blackened out with paint.

He tweeted: “Then and now...Bi-lingual road sign erected at end of May defaced in Enniskillen. So much for tolerance.”

The incident had not been reported to the PSNI therefore they could not comment.
