Arson attack at GAA club

Damage caused at the club.

DAMAGE has been caused in an arson attack at a GAA club in Crumlin.

Members of Naomh Séamas clg were alerted on Sunday evening to a fire at their clubhouse shop.

A club spokesperson said on Sunday night: “Tonight at 8.50pm our clubhouse shop was attacked by mindless thugs and hoods who pushed a bin to the door and set it alight.

“As can be seen from the photos, the damage was extensive both externally and internally with smoke damage ruining our club gear and all the stock in the shop.

“The fact that this disgusting act took place in the middle of a pandemic when our pitch and facilities have been locked up makes it even worse.

“This is an attack on our whole community. If anyone has any information or spotted anyone leaving the vicinity please let us know and we will pass it onto the relevant authorities.

“A massive thanks goes out to the emergency services for preventing further damage and especially our own Senior footballer James Trowlen who helped tackle the blaze. We will not be deterred from providing Gaelic games to our commmunity. #Groveabú”
