Update: A local TD is calling for calm after eight people were injured during a raid on a house in Co Roscommon early this morning.
Gardaí are investigating and say three people were treated in hospital, a number of vehicles were set on fire and a vet had to put down a dog who was injured in the disturbance.
The house and adjoining farm near Strokestown had been at the centre of an eviction earlier in the week.
Local Fianna Fáil TD Eugene Murphy says he will be contacting the bank involved tomorrow morning to see if anything can be done to ease tensions in the area.
He said: "While there seems to have been a very bad handling of the eviction, I have to condemn the violence of last night and most people I have spoken to today don't want that type of scene.
"However, it is absolutely essential that the bank deal with this matter very urgently and to come to some settlement with the family as it is causing a lot of upset in the area.
"And I would again appeal for calm in this situation. We don't want people hurt."
