Hundreds of pounds in old money has been stolen from the house of a pensioner in Kilkenny City.
The house belonging to a man in his 80s on New Road, near the former McDonald’s building, was broken into between 1.20pm and 4.40pm yesterday afternoon.
The culprits broke a pane by the front door and got in that way.
Garda Andy Neill says a large volume of 50 punt notes were stolen, which would be a very unusual sight these days.
Anyone with any information is being urged to contact Kilkenny Garda Station on 056 7775000.
