Cllr David Saurin Condemns Petrol Bomb Attack

Sinn Féin Councillor David Saurin has condemned the recent criminal behaviour in Drogheda’s Tredagh View which culminated in a petrol bomb attack on a house in the early hours of Saturday morning.

Cllr Saurin said “This behaviour is totally unacceptable and those who carried it out have no regard for the damage or injury they could have caused. Thankfully on this occasion no-one was seriously hurt but we could have been waking up to a tragedy this morning. These actions have to stop. They are not wanted in the community.”

David Saurin urged anyone who had any information to contact the Gardaí.

He also urged residents of the area and indeed, other parts of Drogheda, to attend an upcoming public meeting being held by the Joint Policing Committee.

“The meeting will be held in the Westcourt Hotel on 9th October at 7.30pm and everyone is welcome to attend. This anti-social behaviour is not what Drogheda is about and I would encourage everyone to attend and learn about neighbourhood watch and other initiatives that communities can take to help get on top of crime. Residents, Gardaí and local authorities must all work together to combat crime.”

Cllr Munster said “there were two devices thrown into a house where children were residing and that is unacceptable. This took place in a terraced row so not only was the family inside the house at risk but also the families nearby. Thankfully no-one was injured in this attack but that is sheer luck rather than design.”

Gardaí are investigating the attack and are treating it as criminal damage and arson.

Councillor Munster has called on anyone who witnessed anything in the area or who may have information on the incident to contact Gardaí in Drogheda on 041 9874200.
