Dirty Tricks at play as McGrath see’s Trailer Sign Stolen

Deputy Mattie McGrath is facing into the election as an Independent in the newly formed Tipperary constituency. Life as an independent is challenging as access to resources for posters and printed materials are gone and independents must fund their own campaigns. Last night, Mattie McGrath has seen one of his trailers advertising his candidacy stolen “Unfortunately a trailer sign of mine has been stolen from Knocklofty over night. This sign has located at the bottom of Knocklofty Hill for the last number of days and was chained in place”

Speaking to Tipperary Times, McGrath described the trailer as “an agricultural trailer with the below 8×4 sized posters on both sides and could not be missed. The chains were cut and were left in place by whoever stole the trailer. This is just one of a huge number of my signs which have been stolen but this obviously has far more value as it was a trailer which was loaned to me. This is just dirty tricks at play”

Mattie McGrath has called on anyone with information to contact Gardai. “If anyone had any sightings of the trailer last night or this morning or noticed anything suspicious in the Knocklofty area, please contact me or contact Cahir Garda Station”
