GARDAÍ are investigating two violent attacks at a house, including arson, in County Limerick.

Windows at the house, located at Amharc Muilean, Bloodmill Road, located on the outskirts of Limerick City, were smashed on two separate occasions and a car at the house was set ablaze.

Gardaí are monitoring the situation which appeared on their radar on March 25 when windows were smashed at the front of the property around 9pm that night.

A car at the house was then torched in an arson attack and windows at the house were smashed around 10pm on the night of April 10.

A reliable source said that local residents were concerned that someone will be seriously injured or worse if the violence continues.

“Gardaí in Limerick are investigating reports of criminal damage to a car and house following an incident at a residential property at Amharc Muileann, Bloodmill Road, Limerick, on the 10th of April 2024,” a Garda spokesman said.

“No arrests have been made to date, enquires are ongoing,” he added.

It’s understood the attacks on the house are linked to a localised dispute or falling out between a number of parties.

“Rocks appear to have been thrown at the windows and a car set alight,” said a source.

“At around 10pm a vehicle was set alight and Gardaí, fire services, and ambulance attended and the scene was prevented for a forensic examination.”
