There's anger in Cabinteely after playing fields were heavily damaged by a car on Friday night.

Deep ruts left by tyres surrounding a burnt-out car can be seen on footage posted on social media by Cabinteely FC.

The club, which uses the pitches at Kilbogget Park in south Dublin, says two are totally destroyed and won't be usable for weeks or months.

Councillor Barry Ward says it's time to consider putting up better barriers to stop joyriders.

"This is unfortunately not the first time this has happened in Kilbogget Park," he said. "It is a large open park that is surrounded by houses on some sides, roads on others, so it is quite accessible. Maybe part of the solution is to cordon it off with bollards and things like that so that people can't access it and that's a real shame of course because it creates other difficulties for the people that are using them."
