A plaque remembering 1916 volunteers has been vandalised in Cabra.
The plaque at Cabra Bridge on the North Circular Road was put up less than a month ago.
It remembers the men and women of the 1st Battalion of Irish Volunteers, who tried to block British troops advancing through Cabra into the city centre.
Cathaoirleach of the 1916 Relatives Association, Brian O'Neill, said: "The Cabra Historically Society have worked tirelessly to have this plaque erected.
"It was erected with honour, dignity and respect for the men and women of 1916.
"The person or persons who tore it down acted with dishonour and disrespect not only to our 1916 relatives but to the local community".

The damaged plaque has been recovered.
The 1916 Relatives Association say they'll work with Lord Mayor Nial Ring and local councillor Cieran Perry to make sure it's restored.
Lord Mayor Ring added: "We will not allow the bravery of the Republican revolutionaries of 1916 to be disrespected. Cabra is proud of its Republican history."
