Staff at the Office of Public Works had members of the public expose themselves to them, were threatened with attack dogs, and suffered a litany of verbal assaults and attacks.
A log of threats and intimidation details nearly three dozen incidents over the past two years including two cases where a visitor to a heritage site exposed their private parts to a staff member.
The OPW said there was an incident of “indecent exposure” in the car park of one of their sites in the North East of the country in May 2021.
Another similar case was also recorded in September that year at a heritage site in the West when a “staff member was intimidated by a member of the public exposing himself”.
In October 2022, an employee was verbally abused at a location in the South East with the member of the public also readying “his dog to attack”.
A bizarre incident in July saw a staff member come in for a volley of abuse after telling somebody they did not have permission “to play bagpipes on the site” in the North East of the country.
