He said: "I spoke to Superintendent Gerry Curley this morning in relation to the recent petrol bomb attacks on a house in Clontygora Court.

"During that conversation Superintendent Curley told me that there was also an attempted arson attack last night on a Garda drugs unit vehicle which was parked outside Dundalk Garda Station.
