Stáca Mór Crane

Donegal County Council has advised an comharchumann that due to the ongoing vandalism, abuse and misuse of the crane at Stáca Mór, the council may not be in a position to finance further replacement parts and repairs to the crane. Recent vandalism of the crane has been reported to Gardaí as live electrical wiring was left exposed following the bypassing of the load restrictor on the crane. It was left in an extremely hazardous and dangerous condition. The gearbox has recently been split in two and it may be necessary to write-off the crane. Should the crane be repaired in the future, it is important to ensure that it is used appropriately and with respect.
