Appeal over arson attack on local farmA devastating fire on a family farm in Clonbullogue last November was featured on RTE’s Crimecall programme this week, with Gardai issuing a fresh appeal for anyone with information to come forward. A subsequent Garda investigation found that the farm machinery had been “individually packed with straw” and set alight. Despite the fact that the O’Neill farm was extensively covered by CCTV, Gardai found that the cable to the cameras had been cut shortly before 5am on the morning of the fire and the hard drive for the camera was also taken and has not yet been recovered. Eugene O’Neill said his “biggest worry” is that the people who carried out the arson attack on his farm will “come back and do it again” and he stressed the importance of anyone with information to come forward.
