first_imgThe next-door neighbour of the 96 year old woman robbed and punched by thugs says he thought she was dying when he heard her screams of pain.Robbie Callaghan, 52, rushed to the aid of frail Greta Lilly just seconds after she was attacked at her Buncrana home.Robbie and wife Rosemary were entertaining friends at home when Greta’s alarm was activated on Saturday morning last. Robbie, who is linked Ms Lilly by an Eircom alarm, rushed to the scene and found Greta terrified with fear.He told Donegal Daily “The first thing I noticed was that the kitchen window was open and I knew that wasn’t right.“All I heard then was this screaming and I called out her name and she recognised my voice.“She then started screaming that she was robbed and attacked. When she opened the door she was holding her side and it looked like she had been hit on the face,” he revealed. Robbie, who has lived next door to Greta for almost 20 years at Aghilly, Buncrana, said he has never heard such terror.“I honestly thought she was dying. The screams were terrible.“I have never seen anything like it. When she opened the door she was terrified.“She could hardly breathe with the fear and I got a brown paper bag to help her breathe a little easier.“What sort of person does something like this? It’s bad enough she was robbed but to hit a woman who is almost one hundred years old is just disgusting,” said Robbie. Greta is still being treated at Letterkenny General Hospital but her injuries are not understood to be serious despite her ordeal.She is expected to be released in the coming days.The two men who carried out the gruesome attack wore dark clothing, balaclavas and spoke with local accents.The men are understood to have escaped with a substantial amount of cash which Ms Lilly was saving for new windows at her home. Her husband Ted died around ten years ago and Ms Lilly has lived alone since.Meanwhile Gardai say they are making some progress in their investigation.Inspector David Murphy of Buncrana Garda station said “We have made some progress but we have not made any arrests at this stage.“We have received a lot of information which we are following up and acting upon as part of our overall enquiry,” he said.One of those leads is a caller to Ms Lilly’s house last Friday who asked to buy an old car in the driveway.It is understood the man insisted on buying the car for scrap and gained access to Ms Lilly’s house at one stage but then left.Inspector Murphy said “That is one of the avenues we are exploring as part of the overall investigation.”NEIGHBOUR SAYS HE THOUGHT 96 YEAR OLD BURGLARY VICTIM WAS DYING was last modified: January 8th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:AghillybuncranaburglaryMargaret Lillylast_img read more

Buncrana woman puts on the kettle in aid of MS Ireland

first_imgBuncrana woman Maggie Green is hosting a coffee morning at her home in Buncrana in aid of MS Ireland.Mum of two and teacher Maggie was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis a year ago, and would now like to raise €1,000 for MS Ireland.“A year ago MS changed our lives forever and after diagnosis MS Ireland became an invaluable resource. MS Ireland provides information, advice, support and advocacy for people with MS,” Maggie explains. MS is a disease which impacts the electrical messages the central nervous system sends to various parts of the body, causing varying degrees of axonal damage.“Living with MS is an uncertain road and everything can change from one day to the next, having a resource like MS Ireland provides a little light along the way during a very difficult time.“I never expected to be diagnosed with a chronic illness and to say it has changed my life immeasurably is an understatement! I am so very grateful for every day that I am well.“New advances in medicine have changed the landscape of MS in the last 25 years and as more and more research is done the prognosis for those of us diagnosed with MS doesn’t seem as bleak.” The coffee morning will take place on the 25th of November at her home in Buncrana, and everyone is welcome to come by for a cuppa and a few sweet treats! If you can’t make it on the day, all donations to her JustGiving page are welcome and appreciated.To donate to her JustGiving page, you can follow this link:https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/mscoffeemorningBuncrana woman puts on the kettle in aid of MS Ireland was last modified: November 12th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranacoffee morningMS Irelandlast_img read more
