But he said that the “malicious” acts have left posters half-hanging and posing dangers to the general public.

He said: “I got a call from the gardaí to tell me that I was one of the candidates that has been targeted by a vandal.

The other candidates targeted in the vandal’s campaign were Lorraine Clifford-Lee of Fianna Fail and Fine Gael’s James Reilly.

Will Labour's 'Red Wall' Fall Because Of Brexit Or Corbyn? Or Both? .
