Relatives of a local resident who was left severely traumatised by an egg attack on his house last week have handed in a list of names to the Garda station.

The list contains the names of up to 12 names youngsters the enraged relatives believe were behind the attack on the house in Riverside Place. The six-house estate was built for the elderly of the area in the early 1980s.

The man, described as a chronic asthmatic, was found wandering along a dark road towards the house of a close relative after the attack. He was in a very distressed state after leaving the estate - from which he was apparently chased by the gang before a man out walking happened upon the scene.

He was born without the ability to communicate vocally and this has added to the fury of the relatives. They also point out that his was the only house picked on in the attack which took place on the Monday night of last week.

The relatives have now called for security cameras to be placed in strategic locations to cover both the little housing estate and the adjacent children's playground.

The door, walls and windows of the house bear the marks of more than a dozen hits. The man's family members are determined that they'll find out the names of the gang members who carried out the cowardly attack.

Although he is now recovering from the ordeal, the man is said to be afraid to return to his home in the wake of what he endured.
