Charity Road-Sign Missing

Road-signs for a charity truck event taking place on Sunday 31st October in the Green Glens Arena, were erected around the locality during the week. One of these signs has gone missing! It was placed at the Millstreet Junction by the Sandpit Bar on Tuesday evening and had been removed by 5pm Wednesday. We contacted the County Council and they had not removed the sign. We would appreciate if anyone with information could contact 087 2030518 or better again, if whoever has removed it, would be kind enough to return it. It is after all, a charity event for two sick little girls.
