The environuts dictionary does not contain the word irony, obviously.

The company exploring for shale gas in County Fermanagh has confirmed that the family home of one of its site workers has been attacked with petrol bombs.

Two petrol bombs were thrown at the house in Letterbreen during the early hours of Sunday, but no-one was hurt.

The fracking firm, Tamboran, said it followed a number of unlawful incidents and threats to its security staff.

Staff were threatened at a quarry in Belcoo, where Tamboran is intending to drill a gas exploration borehole.

The company has faced opposition to its plans and protesters have held vigils outside the quarry.

In a statement on Monday, the firm described the weekend petrol bombing of its employee's home as "an orchestrated and abhorrent attack on a local family in the middle of the night".

"Tamboran fully respects the right to peaceful protest," the firm's statement added.
