Bagenalstown Gardaí are investigating

A Carlow woman has been left shaken after two men - one of whom was armed with a hammer - broke into her home on Tuesday night. 

Gardaí say it happened at about 10.15pm in Kilree in Bagenalstown.

They broke in through a back door, but when she confronted them, they fled with her handbag. One man had a hammer in his hand and the other had an item which the homeowner could not identify. 

The woman wasn’t hurt in the ordeal.

The only description she could give was that they were both young men and were skinny in stature.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Bagenalstown Gardaí on 059 972 1212.
