An innocent couple have told of the nightmare of being wrongly linked to a bloody feud — after their family home was petrol-bombed.

Damien and Frances Nugent revealed they were 30 seconds away from dying inside their house.

The Nugents are now homeless following the devastating firebomb attack in Drogheda just over a week ago.

They both attended an anti-violence rally in the Co Louth town on Saturday, and have told how they are totally innocent and have nothing to do with the ongoing feud in the town. Mr Nugent said reports in the media suggested the house was targeted because of the criminal feud that has brought terror to the town — but added that couple in fact have nothing to do with the escalating situation.

A STABBING, A kidnap, petrol bombs being thrown , an assault with a hatchet, reports of people entering an estate armed with a shotgun. Then you have the cops saying they don’t have enough people to do the job. The criminals are looking at this and they’re thinking, ‘It’s Christmas’.

Standing outside what remains of their home in Loughboy, Mell, he said: ‘What we are trying to put across is what is being put in the papers — that our house was involved as part of this ongoing drugs feud — and literally we want to clear our names and to state, and anyone that knows me and Frances could 100pc say, that we have nothing whatsoever to do with this drugs feud.’

The attack has left their house uninhabitable, and Mr Nugent said: ‘We are literally homeless at the minute.’

Mrs Nugent said they were asleep in bed in the early hours of last Sunday week, April 28, when she heard a sound that awoke her. She then woke up her husband.

Sex, Drugs, Jazz and the Man Who Ruled Morocco TELOUET, Morocco—Not so long ago, Morocco was all about sex, drugs and jazz. And the man in charge, el Hadj T’hami El Glaoui, the pasha of Marrakech from 1912 to 1956 and rumored to be the richest man in the world, ran a prostitution racket so large that the 27,000 hookers operating in Marrakech represented a reported ten percent of the population.

Mrs Nugent said: ‘I went to open the bedroom door and saw everything was just brightness. I said to my husband, “Run, run, run, get out, get out!” We ran down the stairs. In the nick of time we got to the door and no more. I really and truly mean we should have been dead.’

Mr Nugent added that if they had been even 30 seconds later running down the stairs, ‘we would not be here talking to you’. Since then they have been staying with family and friends.

A rally on Saturday against the violence in the town heard calls for gardai to be given the resources needed to tackle the feud. Mr Nugent said they attended this rally because ‘we are sick of this going on and innocent people getting victimised over this so-called drugs feud when it has nothing to do with them whatsoever’.

The event was organised by Paddy McQuillan after the most recent shooting, which happened on a busy street and left one man with three gunshot wounds. Mr McQuillan said the rally was not political, adding: ‘This is more than politics; this is Drogheda.’

He continued: ‘We stand here shoulder to shoulder for one reason only: we demand that [Justice] Minister Charlie Flanagan gives our gardai the resources they need to rid our streets of this violence once and for all. We are sick of it, enough is enough.’

‘We have nothing to do with drugs feud’ Innocent couple homeless after petrol bomb thrown at Drogheda house © Provided by Associated Newspapers (Ireland) Limited, t/a dmg Media Ireland The Mayor of Drogheda, Frank Godfrey, said: ‘I am appealing to those involved in this current spate of intimidation and violence to stop and to stop it now. The good people of Drogheda do not deserve to be living in fear in their own town. We will not be intimidated. We want peace and calm restored.’

Councillor Pio Smith, who works in addiction services, said: ‘We are saying publicly to people all over Ireland that the values of the people of Drogheda — justice, the rule of law, community, decency — are the values that exist in this town and not the values of violence, intimidation and terror, and that is what we are standing up to today.’

She said: ‘This is not a story about naughty boys behaving badly and running amok in the streets. This is the story of a potential bloodbath on our streets.

‘If the minister had given us the necessary resources he promised us last year, then maybe none of this would be happening at all.’

Louth Chief Superintendent Christy Mangan said last week the feud was between two criminal gangs that ‘have imploded’ and ‘are led by a small cohort’ — but added that ‘there are a considerable number of people behind them to carry out violent acts on their behalf’.

Garda Chief Superintendent warning: 'Ireland is loaded with cocaine.... we will lose a generation of young people if we don't tackle it as a health issue'.
Drogheda’s Garda Chief Christy Mangan has said that Ireland has a massive issue with cocaine and that the town’s problem with warring drug gangs could happen anywhere. He says the demand for cocaine has to be tackled as a national health problem and recognised as far worse than the heroin epidemic ever was.
