Seven men charged over burglary

Seven men have been charged over an aggravated burglary in Co Tipperary

Seven men have been charged in connection with an attack on the home of a Co Tipperary businesswoman.

Gardai said the men, who were arrested hours after the incident at Killenaule three days ago, were all charged with aggravated burglary.

Mark and Emma Corcoran were threatened and attacked in front of their three young children after an armed gang broke into their home in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The gang smashed their way in through the front window at 3am and escaped with jewellery and around 1,500 euro in cash.

Five men were arrested by armed gardai outside Naas 90 minutes later while t he other two were detained hours later at Newlands Cross.

They were held at Garda stations across Co Tipperary and last night, following consultations with the Director of Public Prosecutions, all seven were charged. They are due to appear before a special sitting of Cashel District Court later today.
