Boy on €100k blaze charge

A TEENAGE boy has been accused of causing €100,000 worth of damages during an arson attack on his family home.

The boy, who is in his mid-teens, appeared at the Dublin Children's Court.

He has been charged with assaulting a female at his family's home and damaging the house by fire.

The alleged incident happened earlier this year and the boy "made no reply" when he was charged with the offences, Judge Aingeal Ni Chonduin heard.

He will appear again next month when the court will decide his trial venue.
