Repossessed House Reoccupied By Family Members

Share this article


Two of the family members whose house is at the centre of an eviction row have moved back into the building this evening.

The brother and sister have returned to the repossessed property near Strokestown in Co. Roscommon, as Garda investigations into weekend violence at the site continue.

A gang of around 20 men raided the farm yesterday morning and 8 security men, hired following a court order to repossess the property, were injured.

A dog was killed and at least 6 vehicles were burnt out.

The house has been at the centre of controversy since three members of the same family were evicted last Tuesday.

Donal Hanley, a friend who spoke on behalf of the family, says they are traumatised by events and are at breaking point.
