Woman convinced man tried to abduct her young grandchildren in Drumkeen

Child-abduction-1A Grandmother says she is in no doubt that her two young grandchildren were the victims of an attempted abduction in Drumkeen last Friday.

The young girls were walking with their grandmother when a man in a red van stopped and asked them to get in the van with the offer of sweets.

He is described as being in his 60s, clean shaven wearing a black beanie cap.

Rosaleen told the Shaun Doherty Show how events unfolded:
