Further to the house fire in Balbriggan, County Dublin blamed by some as a racially-motivated, gang-related arson attack..

My very close friend Dare lost his house on August the 9 to a fire. The news and media is making it out to be some sort of gang related incident. Honestly it has nothing to do with that. This was a complete accident.

Thankfully his mother and sister weren’t home, his step dad and little brother were in the house at the time but made it out safely. Thank god there all safe but they left behind everything in that house. Any help (at link below) would be greatly appreciated thank you.

€5,030 to date.
