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,

‘Gardaí 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.
