Gardaí are probing a suspected second petrol bomb attack at a house in Annaly Gardens last night
A second house in a Longford town estate has been damaged as a result of a suspected petrol bomb attack, just as a nationwide appeal was being launched into an almost identical incident last week.
Gardaí are hunting for two males who were seen at the doorway of a house at Annaly Gardens at around 10:30pm last night shortly before an attempt was made to set fire to it.
It comes after a two storey house located a short distance away was gutted by fire during the early hours of last Monday morning (February 17) in a case of suspected mistaken identity.
The incident also occurred just as Superintendent Jim Delaney appeared on RTÉ's Crimecall programme where an appeal over that episode, together with a shooting at a second location also at Annaly Gardens five days previously was made.
