A HOUSE BELIEVED to belong to GAA player Danny O’Callaghan has been burnt down in a suspected arson attack.

O’Callaghan is a former All-Ireland Club Championship winner with Crossmaglen Rangers.

The BBC is reporting that the partially built property belonged to the well-known footballer.

The PSNI is saying that the attack happened in the early hours of Sunday morning at the house on the Monag Road area of Crossmaglen.

At around 2.15 am police received a call that a house under construction had been set on fire.

Speaking about the incident, Inspector Lynsey Bar, said, “I would appeal to anyone who noticed any suspicious activity in the area between midnight and 2.15am to contact Police at Crossmaglen on the non-emergency number 101. Or, if someone would prefer to provide information without giving their details they can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers and speak to them anonymously on 0800 555 111.”
