AN elderly woman was hospitalised with shock after her house was broken into and burgled.

The 93-year-old woman was at home alone in Raheny when the culprits managed to break in last Monday night.

She was not physically harmed in the raid. However she was later taken to Beaumont Hospital and treated for shock. She remains at the hospital.

"It looks like they used some kind of pipe hose and hooked it up to the handle of the door and managed to open it.

"They took some money and jewellery. She was on her own in the house and she was very frightened," a source said.

"These guys absolutely ransacked the house," the source added.

Gardai in Raheny have launched an investigation into the incident. There have been no arrests so far in the case.
