House attack was a case of ‘mistaken identity’

By Ciara Quinn

A YOUNG single mother was left in shock when she woke to find the front of her home had been covered in paint. Aoibhe Gill, who lives with her three-year-old daughter in Iveagh Parade and is three months pregnant, said she was shocked to find green paint had been thrown at her front door and steps last Sunday morning.

“I was woken up by a neighbour on Sunday morning asking had I seen what this person or persons had done to the front of my house. This is just a reckless attack on my home and it is completely a case of mistaken identity,” Aoibhe told the Andersonstown News.

“Whoever was behind this has got the wrong house. I only moved into the area in May and have been trying to get the house organised. I spent seven hours trying to clean the paint off the door on Sunday and it still won’t come off.

“I haven’t slept since it happened in case whoever did this comes back and I don’t want to move either. I just hope whoever it was reads the Andersonstown News and sees that they got the wrong house.

“I just want to be left alone.”

A spokesperson for the PSNI said: “Police in West Belfast are appealing for information following criminal damage in the Iveagh Parade area.

“Some time overnight on the evening of Saturday, 27 August and morning of Sunday, 28 August, the front door of a residential property was damaged with paint.”

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to contact Grosvenor Road Police Station on 0845 600 8000 or Crimestoppers  on 0800 555 111.”
