Three held after arson attack on garda's car

A CAR belonging to a female garda was destroyed in an arson attack outside a garda station.

The Renault vehicle was set alight in Scarriff, Co Clare, early yesterday morning, hours after gardai stopped and seized a vehicle in east Clare.

Three men, aged in their 20s and 30s, were arrested yesterday in connection with the attack that took place in the carpark at the rear of Scarriff garda station around 12.30am.

The 2007-registered Renault, which was empty at the time of the attack, was completely destroyed.

Two front windows at the station were also smashed when the car was set alight.

The three suspects were being questioned on suspicion of criminal damage at Ennis, Shannon and Killaloe garda stations.
