TWO MEN IN their thirties are due before court in Letterkenny this morning over last week’s fire that gutted an Orange Order hall in the town of Convoy.

The hall was extensively damaged in the blaze, which broke out in the early hours of the morning on Friday last.

The Presbyterian church in Convoy was also targeted by suspected arsonists last Thursday night.

Two men, aged 30 and 32, were arrested in connection with the case on Monday evening. They’ve been held for questioning in Letterkenny Garda Station.

The pair are due to appear before Letterkenny District Court.
