    This isn’t the first incident. A similar incident happened on a Burger King Tralee page about 18 months ago and it was deleted also. If these pages are not real why do they keep appearing?
    Are there some people out there so bored with their own lives that they have to create fake pages and try and ruin a businesses reputation?
