Tallaght Man, Andy Donohue, Charged In Petrol Bomb Incident At St John's House

A hearing was told the sole occupant of the building was a female security guard on duty, who fled through a back exit.

An 18-year-old man has appeared in court charged over a petrol bomb attack at a building in Tallaght, which was earmarked for asylum seekers.

A hearing was told the sole occupant of the building was a female security guard on duty, who fled through a back exit.

Andy Donohue, of Citywest View in Tallaght, was charged with causing criminal damage on May 21st at St John's House, and remanded in custody at Tallaght District Court this morning.

At the time, the building on High Street in Tallaght was being considered to house international protection applicants.

Emergency services were called to the scene, and Dublin Fire Brigade brought the blaze under control a short time later.

The teenager was arrested on Saturday and charged on Sunday afternoon.

Gardai told the court he made no reply when charged, and officers objected to bail due to the seriousness of the charge.

A file is being prepared for the DPP.

The judge refused bail and remanded him in custody to appear at Cloverhill District Court on Friday.
