A Laois Tidy Towns group has called on people to stop stealing their flowers.
Portarlington Tidy Towns took to social media yesterday and made they plea.
They say that these flowers were planted in boxes and tubs by Laois County Council around the town.
And while they are not being vandalised, people are actually coming and stealing them instead.
The group said: “We here at Portarlington Tidy Towns are sad to report that a lot of the flowers that were planted in the boxes and tubs around the town are being robbed.
“They are not being vandalised but robbed. This is so unfair on the rest of the people in the town that want to be proud of their town and to see colour on our streets and enjoy the summer flowers.
“The council have planted these for us to enjoy as a town and not for individuals to be selfish and care about no one but themselves.
“Please whoever it is stop and leave the flowers alone and let us enjoy them. Don’t rob our summer.”
