Gardai at Askeaton, Co Limerick, are seeking information about an incident in Granard, Adare, in which three young men wearing balaclavas burst into the home of Mr Patrick Neville (75), who lives alone, at about 7.30 on Saturday evening.

They ransacked the house and left Mr Neville tied up when they failed to get any money. Mr Neville raised the alarm when he untied himself shortly after midnight.
