Gardaí are on the hunt for four masked men who may have been involved in a couple of attempted burglaries locally.
Both happened on Tuesday, the 7th of November, and a silver-coloured saloon type car was sighted close to each house.
The first was at Ballybit, Rathvilly between 4:20 and 4:30pm where the group was seen entering the property over a front gate but they failed to gain access to the home.
A short time later, another homeowner at The Ridge in Old Leighlin had a similar, frightening experience.
KCLR News’ Edwina Grace has been getting the details from Sgt Conor Egan who also outlines what to do if you find yourself in such a situation;
