Damage to two GoCars in Blackpitts, Dublin 8 from suspected arson attacks last night
The GOCar car sharing service was last night hit by two separate incidents of suspected arson on their vehicles.
GoCar Head Of Operations Jonathan Roche responding to the attacks in Dublin 8, said:
“As a small Irish business, an attack on two vehicles worth €15,000 each is obviously a huge disappointment for us, but it is an isolated incident and we’re reassured by how swiftly and thoroughly the Gardai have been dealing with it.
This is an ongoing investigation so we cannot currently comment any further on details of the suspected arson.
These 2 cars are consistently very busy, and with them off the road our members are inconvenienced and we’re losing out on essential revenue.
Our cars are like our shop for any small Irish store, and this attack will cause many knock-on effects for our business with a small team.
We’re confident the benefits of GoCar are being felt by both members and non-members, as each GoCar takes up to 14 private cars off the streets of Dublin and Cork”
