RTÉ have revealed their campus in Donnybrook was “subjected to vandalism overnight”.
The national broadcaster took to Twitter this morning to show the aftermath of the vandalism attack, which saw yellow paint and graffiti splatted across their campus.
“Unfortunately RTÉ was subjected to vandalism overnight,” RTÉ One tweeted.
And sadly that's not the worst of it. pic.twitter.com/chhnA48HYI

The photos show yellow paint sprayed across the RTÉ sign at the front of their building.
In another tweet they said, “And sadly that’s not the worst of it,” as they shared a photo of a penis spray painted on the footpath.
The culprits also painted, “F*** you Healy,” on the ground.
Many Twitter users shared their shock over the incident, but some questioned whether it’s a PR stunt to promote season three of The Young Offenders, which premieres tonight on RTÉ One at 9:30pm.
This is some sort of a promo for Young Offenders ????

U dunno, looks like a PR stunt to promote the new series of the Young Offenders tonight, and if so… its brilliant ????????????. If not, you'd be quicker trying to clean it then tweet it! Hardly a Banksy eh? ????

The 'offenders' are thought to be 'young' with dodgy haircuts and Cork accents…
