Bray People - - FRONT PAGE - Mary FOG­A­RTY

A GANG of mind­less thugs is mak­ing life hell for a Fas­saroe woman.

The woman, who is in her 50s, said up to 30 youths are sur­round­ing her house night af­ter night, taunt­ing her and hurl­ing mis­siles at her home.

She says she now sits ter­ri­fied at home in the dark to avoid be­ing seen by her tor­men­tors. ‘They are throw­ing stones and eggs at my home and at me,’ said the tear­ful vic­tim, ‘they threw a span­ner at me the other day when I left the front door open for a mo­ment.

‘When I go out to the shop they shout nick­names at me, sex­ual things. They’re ten times more vi­cious if I go out­side, with more of them gath­er­ing and gath­er­ing.’

She said that she has re­ported the abuse to the gar­daí and the coun­cil but the cam­paign of in­tim­i­da­tion con­tin­ues. Neigh­bours are aware that the woman, who lives alone, is be­ing tar­geted, but they are pow­er­less to help her.

THE DEV­AS­TATED VIC­TIM said that she has ap­proached one of the par­ents but got nowhere.

‘Her son is an an­gel as far as she’s con­cerned,’ she said. Two friends have tried to help the woman clean the egg stains from her win­dow but can’t re­move the grime. ‘I don’t know what to do or where to go next.’

Dam­age caused to one of the win­dows at the house in Fas­saroe.
