An environmentalist who has been described as "very troubled" has been jailed for five years for setting fire to the Irish Headquarters of the Jesuit Order, and causing over three million euro worth of damage. Judge Katherine Delahunt said 26 year old Noah Bunn (back story) from Northampton was delusional and may have a significant problem developing. The court heard that on the night before Good Friday (Two Standards) last year after spending some time drinking in Cork he decided to commit the crime.
He returned to Dublin, purchased petrol and a lighter, let himself into the building in Donnybrook and ushered the sole resident out before setting the property alight destroying it.
The court heard he said he did it because the Jesuit Order were not using their moral authority to alert the world to the dangers of climate change.
