Gardaí making significant progress into fire at Drogheda Boys and Girls FC

Garda Superintendent Andrew Watters.

Drogheda Gardaí say they are making ‘significant progress’ with their investigations into a fire which caused thousands of Euros worth of damage to Drogheda Boys and Girls FC on Marley’s Lane. 

There was an outpouring of support for the club after the incident and they set up a Gofundme page to help replace the damaged property. 

The fire left the club without any equipment or storage facilities and some of the items damaged cannot be replaced. 

At a recent meeting of the Joint Policing Committee (JPC) for Drogheda, Garda Superintendent Andrew Watters also said, “I am glad to say we are making very steady progress,” in the criminal damage investigation.

Just under €20,000 was raised by the club on Gofundme and other donations were also made including by Drogheda Dolls.
