The headquarters of  the Irish Central Bank has been vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti.

It is unknown how the perpetrators managed to avoid the security around the building which is continually filmed by CCTV cameras and surrounded by a six foot wall with signs that clearly state that no unauthorized personnel should enter the site.

Netwatch Security monitor the building itself, while At Risk Security monitor the land directly behind it, writes the Irish Times.

A Central Bank spokeswoman has said: “There are security arrangements in place at the site. We will now investigate how these failed to prevent this break in and damage and how they can be improved to mitigate this happening again,” she said.

She also said that the organization had contacted Gardaí about the incident and would be removing the graffiti as soon as possible.

The building, which was once valued at $327 million but bought from the National Asset Management Agency by the Central Bank at a cost of nearly $9 million, was graffiti ed from top to bottom with the surnames of a number of politicians and bankers alongside the words ‘Irish traitors’. The Star of David is also visible beside acronyms for the European Central Bank (ECB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) with phrases such as ‘Jewish Financial Terrorism’, ‘Jewish supremacist destruction of indigenous Europeans’, ‘Zionist Global Financial Terrorism’ and ‘New Multicult Star Religion’ also spray painted on the walls.

Graffitied references to 'S Dunne' and 'Drumm' refer to developer Sean Dunne, who borrowed huge sums from a number of banks, and David Drumm, the lender's former chief executive, the Herald.ie reports.

Gardai have confirmed that they have been notified about the incident and are looking into the matter.

At Risk security guard John Harte condemned the culprits, noting they would have been issued with an automatic warning over a loudspeaker when they attempted to enter the building. “It’s people just being stupid, as usual ... people that don’t care, they’ve got nothing better to do,” Mr Harte told The Irish Times.
 
The Central Bank will move into their new headquarters in 2015.
