Sinn Fein MEP for this region, Matt Carthy says he hopes those behind a fire attack on the car of a County Leitrim TD are brought to justice.
The apparent attack happened outside the home of his party colleague, TD Martin Kenny at Aughavas, near Ballinamore at around half 2 yesterday morning.
Last week in the Dail Deputy Kenny spoke up in support of a controversial centre for asylum seekers in Ballinamore, Co Leitrim.
Gardai are appealing for witnesses who were in the area between midnight and 3am yesterday to contact them.
MEP Carthy says the community is appalled by the blaze:
