THE CO-OWNER of a popular Limerick city centre pub has hit at a vandal who uprooted a plant pot, causing around €200 worth of damage in the early hours of Friday morning. 

Mike McMahon, co-owner of popular Mother Macs public house on High Street, took to social media to condemn the “damage and destruction” this Friday morning. 

On Twitter, posting from the Mother Macs account, he said: “Why must certain individuals cause damage and destruction. We are very proud of our city and this type of behaviour saddens us #pointless”. 

He told the Limerick Leader that the culprit uprooted a tree from the pot and untangled lights that were wrapped around the plant. 

Mr McMahon said that the damage is in the region of €200. 

“You pull a lot of pints and work hard for that,” he said. 

“To have a numpty behave like that is just terrible, who has no regard for the city.”

He said that the tree was returned to the pub after it was found outside a charity shop on High Street. 

“We have huge pride in our city and we have huge pride in the business that we have,” said Mike, who runs the venue with his brother James. 

In May 2017, Mother Macs took to social media to hit at a young man who damaged the pub’s flower bed.
