Local sources indicate the property was boarded up two years ago by the Criminal Assets Bureau, due to organised crime links.

A Garda spokesperson told The Echo: “Gardai are investigating an incident of criminal damage by fire which occurred in Grange View Rd, Clondalkin shortly after midnight, August 12. No injuries. No arrests.”
