Fighting back? Arson suspected at building in Tallaght due to house migrants




The fire attack on a south Dublin building that was housing applicants for international protection is being looked into, reports RTE.

Around 11:00 p.m., an attack took place on St John’s House, an abandoned building on Tallaght’s High Street.

After emergency personnel were dispatched to the area, the fire was quickly contained.

It seems that a suspected pipe bomb was the reason, reports RTE.

The incident did not result in any injuries, and Tallaght gardaĆ­ have asked anyone with information or video to get in touch with them.

This is the second incident of this week that has occurred after an alleged arson attack on a facility in Clonmel, County Tipperary, that was intended to be used for the construction of modular homes for refugees, reports RTE.
