A reward has been offered for information on who carried out a terrifying attack on two elderly brothers.
Michael and Owen Kelly were assaulted and tied up by two men with a gun who ransacked their remote farmhouse in Co Galway.
The pensioners, who are both in their 80s, were left traumatised after the three-hour ordeal.
Crimestoppers has launched a fresh appeal for information on the attack, which happened at about 11pm on Thursday June 7 in the townland of Ballyroe, near Williamstown.
The sum of the reward will depend on the information given to them on 1800 25 00 25.
Superintendent Gearoid Begley, from Tuam Garda Station, said investigators are anxious to speak to anyone who was in the area on the Thursday night or Friday morning, adding: "People might remember that Thursday June 7 was a very wet night."
The intruders, who were both Irish, had a firearm and threatened the brothers, demanding that they give them money.
Even after the intruders left the house the brothers remained bound for some time until, eventually, one of them managed to get free and raise the alarm.
One of the raiders was approximately 5ft 5in and of medium build, and the second man is said to have been much taller, but was also of medium build.
They wore balaclavas or dark woolly hats pulled over their faces with eye and mouth holes cut out, dark clothes and runners.
