Heartless thugs set fire to the belongings of what Navan Independent councillor Alan lawes described as a ‘Very vulnerable homeless man’ in Navan last Saturday night.

Lawes took to Facebook to post this message on Monday morning.

‘I really cannot understand the mentality and downright cruelty of some people. On Saturday night here in Navan a homeless mans few posessions were set alight by mindless idiots.
Luckily our outreach team were able to make the man comfortable on Sunday morning’.

Lawes told Meath Live, ‘ The man in question is very vulnerable and what happened was a despicable act’.

The incident took place in the Johnstown area.
