Gardai have confirmed they are investigating what appears to have been an arson attack on the old HSE building in Kells that took place yesterday afternoon Sunday (28/11/21).

A spokesman said,

‘Garda√≠ are investigating suspected criminal damage by fire incident that occurred on the afternoon of Sunday, 28th November 2021, at premises in Kells, County Meath.


¬†‘No arrests have been made at this stage of this ongoing investigation.’

The premises are just a short walk from the Magdalene Court and Headfort Grove estates which have been the scene of vigilante behaviour in recent weeks due to alleged anti-social behaviour by youths.
