Front Page

 Five people, including children, were lucky to escape with their lives when theirhouse at Clontygora Court in Dundalk was attacked..

In a statement, Sinn Féin Deputy Ruairí Ó Murchú and Dundalk South councillor Kevin Meenan said they were appalled by the attack at a family home at Clontygora Court in Dundalk which happened at around 3.35am this morning.

The Sinn Féin representatives said: “This was an appalling attack on a family home where there were children sleeping. We understand that at least one adult was injured, sustaining broken bones when they had to jump to safety from a first floor window.

“This is the latest in a long line of attacks on this house and we understand that the origin of this may be linked to a drugs debt.

“This property has been the subject of attempted arson attacks in the recent past, which have clearly escalated to the point where five people, including children, were treated in hospital.”
