Two quizzed on tiger kidnap

GARDAI investigating a €100,000 tiger kidnap last week are questioning two suspects.

Officers arrested a 27-year-old man and a 25-year-old woman in Gort, Co Galway.

They were taken to Henry Street and Roxboro Road stations for questioning about a raid on Newcastlewest post office in Co Limerick.

The postmaster's son, Tommy Kelliher (25), was kidnapped and held for eight hours while a female member of staff paid over a ransom of around €100,000. Mr Kelliher was later found uninjured in the back of his car in the Templegreen estate in the town.
