Donegal arson attacks: teenager charged reporters

A TEENAGER has been charged in connection with a spate of arson attacks in Co Donegal.

The 17-year-old boy is due before Buncrana district court on Thursday 8 September.

Another 17-year-old has been released without charge and a file is being prepared for the DPP.

Gardai had been investigating a series of fires in a 10-mile radius around Buncrana, describing them as random and many occurring in isolated areas.
