Children injured in petrol bomb attack

Two children are currently on there way to a burns unit in Dublin after they were injured in a petrol bomb attack this evening.

The incident occurred around 2.00pm in Pineview Gardens in Moyross when a mother and her two children were sitting in there car. A petrol bomb was thrown through the back window.

The two children, a 4 year old boy and a 6 year old girl were immediately rushed to Limerick Regional Hospital.

The NewsWire has also learned that Gardai were pelted with bottles and stones by large gangs last night in the Pineview Gardens area where at least one petrol bomb was apparently thrown near Casey’s shop in the area.

The unrest must have spilled over into today.Radio reports suggest that this particular family were not from the area.
