Nearly €1,000 taken from couple during after dinner walk in Rossnowlagh

Gardai in South Donegal are hunting a gang which stole nearly €1,000 from a Tyrone couple as they walked near Rossnowlagh last night.

Three men in their 20s with hoodies confronted the couple, who are from Dungannon, and in their 40s.

It happened on a road just yards from the beach as the couple were walking following dinner at a holiday home they stay in regularly and which is owned by friends.

Gardai said the couple weren't physically attacked, but were shocked by the event.

The couple told gardai the men confronted them threateningly, and it was clear what would happen if they didn’t hand over their money.

A garda investigation is continuing.
