Gardaí are investigating an arson attack at a house in Drogheda, Co Louth overnight.

It happened at 11.50pm in the Moneymore area of the town.

Gardaí say three youths threw a suspect device in the front sitting room window of a house.

No one was injured but a considerable amount of damage was caused.

It follows a gun attack in the town yesterday during which a 36-year-old man was shot.

He remains in hospital in a serious but stable condition.

It is believed these incidents are part of an ongoing feud in Drogheda.
