A house put on the market by CAB after being seized from a drug dealer was attacked.
The wealth agency took control of convicted trader Dessie Enfield’s €500,000 plush home in Ramelton, Co Donegal last July.
A few weeks later in September the house on the shore overlooking Lough Swilly was firebombed.
The site with the remains of the house was put on the market by CAB a few weeks ago with a value of €88,000.
However, last night the house was attacked and covered in graffiti.
The words “Drug Dealer’s House” and “Buy get wacked” were scrawled on the walls of the house.
Another chilling warning was sprayed on the outside pillars of the house: “Buy, get shot”.
The messages, sprayed in green ink, can be found all over the walls of the once palatial building.
A Garda forensic team was due to arrive at the site this morning and a full investigation into the matter has been launched.
The remains of the house at Drumherrive, Ramelton are in the grounds, which measure about half an acre.
The house was seized from its former owner Enfield, who was jailed in Northern Ireland in 2016 after being caught with a €340,000 shipment of drugs.
In court, he was labeled as the leader of a cross-border drug gang.
The house, surrounded by stone walls and wrought iron gates, boasted a stunning kitchen and black marble countertops and floors.
It was supposed to be sold at an open auction to the highest bidder, with proceeds going back to the state, before it mysteriously burned to the ground.
Enfield used the home as a base for himself and his friends and was often seen driving high-end cars that towed jet skis, which he used locally along the coast.
Now CAB hopes to reclaim as much as possible for the site, which should still attract a lot of interest due to its prime location.
According to seller Hogan Estates, the location is ideal for a “bespoke family home”.
It states: ‘The property is on the Ramelton to Rathmullan road approximately 5 km from Ramelton.
“This superb location is ideal for a bespoke family home with stunning views across Lough Swilly, in an area of outstanding natural beauty and yet only five minutes drive from either of the two local towns.
“There is a wealth of good educational, recreational, retail and sporting facilities in the immediate vicinity and this lovely site is just 14 minutes’ drive from Letterkenny and 30 minutes’ drive from Lifford.
“On the site are the existing remains of a house.”
