Senator Colm Burke had a brick thrown through the window of his constituency office in Cork on Sunday evening, the politician has said.
He added that the incident has come after hundreds of his election posters were removed without his permission.
In a post on Twitter, the senator said: “Bricks fired through the window in my office in Blackpool this evening. It has been a difficult few days with over 250 posters taken down and illegally removed.”
Mr Burke added that despite the vandalism, he would continue in his campaign for election.
“No candidate or their staff should have to face this, but my campaign and I won’t be intimidated or deterred,” he said.
