And the latest victim of the Donegal GAA flag snatchers is none other than the Deputy for Donegal South West Pearse Doherty.
It’s the second time the Sinn Fein’s Gaoth Dobhair office flag has been stolen, said the TD.
He arrived back yesterday from a week camping with his wife and children in Arklow to discover the latest theft.
“Can’t believe someone stole my Donegal flag from the flagpole outside SF office in Gweedore last night. 2nd time it happened,” tweeted Mr Doherty.
But he is by no means the first victim.
Flag thefts have been reported across the county, with businesses suffering most.
One north Donegal car dealer admitted to us: “It has cost me a fortune. I’ve lost more than a dozen flags so far – and I’m not putting up any new ones until a couple of days before the semi-final against Cork.”
