Priest robbed by intruder armed with screwdriver
Small sum of cash taken by man from parochial house in Lusk, Co Dublin
Gardaí are investigating a robbery at the parochial house in Lusk last night.
A parish priest in Co Dublin is recovering at home after an armed thief gained entry to his house and stole cash.
It is thought the robber gained entry to the house, possibly after ringing the doorbell, and then confronted the priest with a screwdriver, demanding money.
A small sum was handed over. The parish collection from Sunday’s masses had already previously been lodged.
The priest, who is in his 60s, is helping gardaí with their inquiries. He was not injured in the robbery.
