A young man has pleaded guilty to arson at a Letterkenny apartment complex.

Rory O’Hara appeared at Letterkenny Circuit Court where he pleaded guilty to setting fire to Riverfront House Apartments at Pearse Road.

The 23-year-old admitted arson at the complex on November 29th, 2018.

His barrister Ms Fiona Crawford told the court that her client had come under the care of the probation services previously and has had problems since.

She asked for the preparation of a probation report which was agreed to by Judge John Aylmer.

Ms Crawford also said her client had a relationship with the psychiatric services and Judge Aylmer added that any psychiatric report deemed necessary was also to be carried out.

The case was adjourned to the next sessions of the circuit court in April.
