Arson Attack in Newbridge, Co. Kildare on the 4/10/09.

This month sees the first anniversary of the death of Michael Crowe from Newbridge, Co. Kildare. His wife Elizabeth makes an appeal for information on this month’s programme.

The Crowe family home in Phairc Mhuire Estate in Newbridge, Co. Kildare was the subject of an arson attack in the early hours of Sunday, the 4th October 2009. Michael, Elizabeth and their son Tomas were in the house when it was set ablaze just after 6am. Elizabeth and Tomas managed to escape through an upstairs front window but sadly Michael did not and lost his life.

The family were also awoken at 2 am that morning as a window at the front of the house was smashed by a brick. Gardaí are also appealing for any witnesses to this incident to come forward as it may help their enquiries into the tragic death of 81 year old Michael Crowe.
