Newtowncunningham Orange Hall gutted three weeks ago

TWO men have been arrested by detectives investigating the double arson attacks in Donegal.

The men were detained at separate addresses in east Donegal following an intensive Garda investigation since the attacks on an Orange Hall and Presbyterian Church in the early hours of last Friday.

It’s understood a number of searches have also taken place as a result of the fast-moving Garda inquiries.

The Orange Hall was destroyed in the arsonists’ attack.

A bible was set alight at the nearby Presbyterian Church but thankfully the fire there did not take hold.

There has been widespread condemnation of the October 3rd incidents which have sickened the community in Convoy.

Church leaders from all sides have come together to say those behind the incidents will not be allowed to divide the community.

The Convoy attacks came just three weeks after an Orange Hall in Newtowncunningham was also destroyed in an arson incident.

It’s understood the two men arrested in east Donegal will also be questioned about that incident.
