Bray People - - Bray People - Mary FOG­A­RTY

A WOMAN in her 20s has been ar­rested in con­nec­tion with the fire tragedy in which fire­men Brian Mur­ray and Mark O’Shaugh­nessy lost their lives.

The woman was yes­ter­day (Tues­day) be­ing held at Bray Garda Sta­tion un­der the pro­vi­sions of Sec­tion 13 of the Non­Fa­tal Of­fences against the Per­sons Act 1997 - Reck­less En­dan­ger­ment.

This is the sec­ond in a se­ries of ar­rests, a man in his 40s hav­ing been seized from his home early in the morn­ing last month and de­tained for a day on sus­pi­cion of reck­less en­dan­ger­ment.

A com­puter, phone and doc­u­ments were un­der­stood to have been taken from the house. A file was sent to the DPP fol­low­ing ques­tion­ing in that in­stance.

Gar­daí are ex­pected to make at least one more ar­rest in con­nec­tion with the fa­tal blaze of Septem­ber 2007 in with Brian (46) and Mark (25) died in an un­used Bray ware­house at Ade­laide Vil­las. The fam­i­lies of the de­ceased men have said that they hope that th­ese ar­rests sig­nal an end to the Garda in­ves­ti­ga­tion, which has been on­go­ing for 13 months. The woman can be held for up to 24 hours be­fore be­ing ei­ther charged or re­leased.

The fam­i­lies of both men are fight­ing for re­form within the ser­vice and to have a full-time ser­vice in Bray, as well as the in­tro­duc­tion of a na­tional fire au­thor­ity.
