‘We have nothing to do with drugs feud’ Innocent couple homeless after petrol bomb thrown at Drogheda house
By Elaine Keogh 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.
Shots were fired into a house in Drogheda in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
The shocking late-night attack took place in the Beechwood Drive area of Marleys Lane at 12.15am.
The shooter fired in through the window of the sitting room but no one was injured in the attack.
A garda spokeswoman told The Irish Daily Mirror: "Gardaí in Drogheda were alerted to an incident of shots fired at a house on Beechwood Drive in the early hours of this morning, Wednesday 15th May, 2019.
"Two shots were fired at the front door and also at the front window. A number of persons were in the house at the time but no persons were injured. Investigations ongoing."
