Deceased Kilkenny man's house robbed while his body was in funeral home

Unscrupulous vandals robbed the house of a dead man on Thursday night. 

Pensioner, Joe Mansfield's remains were in a local funeral home when at least two people broke into his home on Green Street, Callan and ransacked it.

His neighbours and friends have been left stunned by the callous act. The octogenarian was loved by all and his favourite thing to do every day was to feed the birds on the street. He died suddenly on Wednesday. 

Any information in the strictest confidence to Callan Garda Station on 0567725232.
