Thieves broke into the home of an elderly woman and stole her daughter’s jewellery – just days after she had buried her sister.
The callous robbers broke into the home of Beattie Doherty in the village of Convoy on Friday morning.
Mrs Doherty had gone on a short break after the ordeal of losing her beloved sister just a couple of weeks ago.
As well as ransacking the house, the thieves also took money which she had received for her birthday.
Family, friends and neighbours of Mrs Doherty, who has lived in the village for more than 50 years, are outraged by the burglary.
Relatives of the victim have left messages on social media offering a reward for the return the personal items stolen in the raid.
They include Mrs Doherty’s daughter’s jewellery.
One family member wrote on Facebook “We are feeling so disheartened & disgusted that this has even happened.”
Another family member said Mrs Doherty is a kind neighbour who has always tried to help people.
Gardai have confirmed they are carrying out a full investigation into the burglary.
Dozens of people have left messages of support on social media in support of the Doherty family.
Some have even offered their own reward for information as to who was responsible for the despicable act.
