Teen arsonist to learn of his fate

A 15-year-old will have to wait to learn his fate after admitting he caused €115,000 worth of damage during an arson attack on a church building.

The teenager had been put out of his family home and began abusing alcohol, the Dublin Children's Court heard. He pleaded guilty earlier to causing criminal damage by fire at St Brigid's Church, in Killester, in Dublin, on July 24, 2008. He will be sentenced next week.
