  Locals angered after village sculpture destroyed in night of 'absolute chaos' © Love Schull via C103 A SCULPTURE IN a small tourist village in West Cork was destroyed last night after a group of individuals caused “absolute chaos”.

Speaking on C103’s Cork Today Show, Paul Phillips of the Schull District Community Council said that the sculpture was “ripped off its plinth and torn to pieces”.

The sculpture, which overlooked the harbour in Schull, was made to commemorate the local fishing community and the townspeople.

Photos were taken of the area this morning showing the sculpture smashed to pieces across the ground, and cans of alcohol left behind.

A memorial sculpture was created to honor Michele Lepire from Quebec, Canada, who passed away suddenly this past year after winning the “People’s Choice Award” in 2017. The sculptures will remain on display through June 27th, and will be lit for night viewing.

“It was a beautiful day. People started drinking in the evening, the pubs closed eventually, they loaded up with a takeaway and carried on drinking through the night down by the pier,” Phillips explained.

While he said that gatherings by the pier are usually harmless, last night was “just chaos, absolute chaos”.

“Not just the pier, but car parks were filled with smashed bottles. It looked like there was a rave going on,” he said.
