The cars were parked in the Cregagh estate on Friday evening.

Sometime after 7pm, during Ulster's RaboDirect PRO12 fixture against Munster, 19 vehicles parked in the Burren Way, North Bank and Killagan Bend areas of the estate were damaged.

All of the vehicles suffered damage to their paint work after being scraped with some form of sharp object.

A PSNI spokesman said it was likely a number of the cars belonged to spectators attending the game at Ravenhill.

Police have appealed for anyone with information to contact investigating officers on 0845 600 8000.

Bobby should note that no laws exist to protect residents' parking rights. His brother might own a house in the area but he doesn't own the road outside it. I have all day parkers outside my house 8am to 5pm Mon to Fri and I just accept it. He should tell his brother to suck it up and stop whinging.

I have to apologise for my spelling on my last post it was rushed.I just want to say well said to Bobby it's not fair on local home owners to have ruby fans park outside there doors when the ruby is on and if I was a betting man I would to would say it was a local that did the vandalism to the motors as there fed up with I don't condone it in anyway

I second what 'Ricky in East Belfast' has to say - rugby fans going to watch games at Ravenhill use the estate as their own personal car park, with very little regard for residents. My brother, who owns a house in the area, will often return home to find the space outside his house has been taken up by a fans' cars on match nights. when he has put his wheelie bin in his space in order to try and prevent this happening, the bin will be moved and the space once again occupied by fans' cars. there's an arrogance displayed by the fans who it seems think they can park wherever they like, to hell with parking laws and residents' front-of-house area. i would wager the vandal is a resident(s) of the estate who is fed up with this situation...
