Innocent man escapes injury after house is blown up amid debt dispute


An innocent man in his 50s was the only person at a property that was shot at late Tuesday night.

Officials in Co Offaly are working on the theory that the house was attacked because of debts to a local criminal gang.

The resident of the house is not involved in any crime and does not owe any debts.

So far there have been no arrests in the case, but officers are investigating whether a local gang was responsible for the gun attack, which left no one injured.

Today, Gardaí filed a request for information in the case.

“Gardaí is appealing for witnesses following the handover of a firearm in Clara, Co. Offaly on Tuesday July 5, 2022,” a spokeswoman said.

“Around 11:30pm Tuesday evening, Gardaí received reports that a number of shots had been fired at a property in Oakview, Clara, Co. Offaly. No injuries were reported during the incident.

“No arrests have been made at this time and the investigation is ongoing.

“Gardaí is appealing for witnesses to come forward and all road users with video footage (including dashcam) are asked to provide it to them.

“Anyone with information is asked to contact Tullamore Garda Station on 057 932 7600 or the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111,” she explained.

In another case, Gardaí in Tallaght are continuing to investigate a gun attack that took place on Tuesday afternoon.

A 67-year-old man has been taken to hospital after gunshots rang out at a house in south Dublin this afternoon.

Emergency services were alerted to the incident in the Bawnlea area of ​​Tallaght just after 2pm.

Gardaí are investigating whether a low-velocity weapon, believed to be a shotgun, was used in the shooting.

The injured person suffered non-life-threatening facial injuries in the incident, which saw two shots fired at the property.

A front window of the house was also smashed before the perpetrator fled the scene. Innocent man escapes injury after house is blown up amid debt dispute
