A man, aged 94 has been removed by ambulance to the Midlands Regional Hospital in Portlaoise, suffering with head injuries, following an aggravated burglary at his home here in North Tipperary.

Gardaí confirm that the man was in the family home at Old Dublin Road, Roscrea, Co Tipperary, with his wife, when two men broke through a side window in the building around 11.40pm last night, before assaulted the 90-year-old.

    If the burglars are caught will they suffer as much as THE 90 YEAR OLD MAN. ……..NOT A HOPE…..NO REAL PUNISHMENT FOR BURGLARY.
