Disgraceful: Arson attack on Fine Gael TD’s office in Co Mayo


According to reports Gardai in Co Mayo were called to the scene of a disgraceful arson attack on the constituency office of Fine Gael TD Michelle Mulherin.

It is believed that officers of the Gardai were called to the premises which is located in Ballina at approximately 7pm last night after they received a report of a broken window, however they soon discovered that a fire was set on the premises when they arrived.

Gardai say that the fire was quickly extinguished and thankfully nobody was in the office at the time. They also say that they have launched a full investigation into the attack.

It is believed that the attack may have been orchestrated in response to claims that Deputy Mulherin had made calls from Leinster House to a private phone in Kenya. It is understood that the bill for the alleged calls, which were believed to have been made between 2011 and 2013, cost the taxpayer just over €2,000.

Ms Mulherin has responded to the claims by saying that she did indeed make the calls but they were not personal in nature.
