Quoted from the Newswire:

The House of Sheila Murray, mother of the two Limerick children burned in an arson attack last month has come under attack overnight.

The mother along with six of her kids were forced to flee their Pineview Gardens house around 1am when the windows of the house were smashed in by rocks and bricks.Their car was also smashed in the attack by a group of men.

Councilor John Ryan spoke on local radio earlier this morning saying how he received a phone call from the terrified mother.,

“Last night I got a phone call from Sheila Murray to say that she couldnââ€â„¢t stay in her house, it was under siege. There was rocks being thrown at it and the window of the car was broken. They tried to push in the doorâ”

He also condemned the attack and said it was appalling. Gardai at Mayorstone are investigating the incident.

Wonderful.

Social workers later said that the attackers, who were forced into their actions by lack of educational opportunity and low self-esteem, needed urgent support to help them grow as valuable human beings.
