AN elderly brother and sister have been robbed for the second time this year at their home in Carraroe, Co Galway.
The pair were targeted last January when raiders took a substantial amount of money.
They were again robbed last midweek when a raider entered their house while they were distracted by an accomplice at the front door.
Gardai said neither of the victims -- aged in their 70s and 80s -- was harmed, but urged elderly people to be extra-cautious of strange visitors to their homes.
"A window was damaged during the incident and some personal items and an amount of cash was taken," said a spokesman.
It is believed that two males were involved in the robbery.
