Gardaí in Letterkenny are renewing their appeal in relation to an Aggravated Burglary which took place at Feddyglass, Raphoe a year ago yesterday.

Gardai are hoping that anyone with any information which may progress the investigation will come forward, partiocularly anyone who saw any suspicious activity on the N14 Letterkenny to Lifford road on July 1st last year.

On Monday 1st July 2013 at approximately 5pm, two men entered the home of the Arthur sisters Isobel aged 91 and Susan aged 89.

During the incident, Susan Arthur was knocked to the ground, and was brought to Letterkenny General Hospital, where she remained until her death on the 11th of October.

About an hour before the men entered the home and attacked the sisters, they had called to the house along with a third man in a small silver car, asking if the sisters wanted any painting carried out.

The offer was declined, and the men left.

Anyone who may have any information in relation to the aggravated burglary is asked to contact Gardaí in Letterkenny on 074-9167100, the Garda Confidential Line 1800-666-111 or any Garda Station.
