Residents of two homes in the north of the county were left terrified by two different aggravated burglaries at the end of last month.

In one incident, an elderly couple were left shaken following a burglary at their Ballyragget home on the evening of October 25. Between 8pm and 8.30pm, three men entered the couple’s home, where they assaulted the pair and then left with some items of property.

In another incident – this time in Coolcullen – a man was assaulted when raiders broke into his home at around 9.30pm on October 24.
