The van only opened last month.

A mobile coffee van in Laois has shut down, due to multiple cases of vandalism.

Lily's Coffee in Rosenallis was set up just last month, but has since faced an incident of vandalism costing €7,000, intimidation and high business costs.

It donated 20% of its proceeds to the Rosenallis Revival Scheme, and ran not-for-profit.

In a Facebook post announcing the decision, owner of the coffee van, Brian Farrell says it was a 'genuine effort' to bring people in the community together and he is 'heartbroken' at he choice he has had to make. 

He's also thanking the people who have supported him over the past month.
