The body of a 23-year-old was found near Malahide Road, Dublin

GARDAI believe they have identified the thugs who robbed 78-year-old Phyllis McGee last January in her isolated home.

 It was the second raid on her home outside the border village of Pettigo, Co Donegal, in eight weeks.

Gardai have targeted a gang who live a short distance away from Pettigo, across the border in Co Fermanagh.

They robbed a Bundoran premises before they raided Phyllis’s house. Evidence is still being carefully gathered before an extradition is sought.
