GARDAI have been granted additional time to question two men about an aggravated burglary in Pallasgreen almost two weeks ago.

Three members of the Creed family, who are aged in their 60s and 70s, sustained serious injuries when they were confronted by two masked raiders who entered their home at Ballyluddy, Pallasgreen on May 31, last.

A 27-year-old man was arrested in Monard, Co Tipperary last Wednesday as part of the investigation and a second man, aged 28, was arrested in Doon on Saturday morning.

Both men are being questioned under Section 50 of the Offences Against the State Act at Bruff and Henry Street garda stations.

Last evening, investigating gardai were granted additional time by Judge Eamon O’Brien to question the two men, following an application, which was made by Chief Supt David Sheahan.

More than 30 gardai are involved in the investgation, which is being led by Det Insp Tom O’Connor.
