Priest recovering from robbery at his home in Dublin

A Dublin priest is recovering after being targeted by men armed with a gun in his home.

Two men broke into Fr Arthur O'Neill's bedroom after 5am yesterday morning, and threatened to shoot him unless he gave them money.

The priest, who works in St Brigid's Parish in Cabinteely, managed to convince them he had none in the house, and the men left after stealing his mobile phone.
