A meteorological mast has been knocked over in Co Laois.
The structure was in place in Cullenagh Forest in the south east of the county.
The 80 metre mast, which is owned by sustainable energy company Coillte, has been irreparably damaged.
Coillte has said that it is currently investigating the matter and has informed An Garda Síochána.
The company was granted permission for an 18 turbine wind farm in the area in June of last year. However, this is currently the subject of a court appeal.
It is reported that there has been some opposition to the wind farm in the local area.
