A substantial amount of property was stolen.
An Offaly farmer has been left unable to function after €20,000 worth of equipment was stolen in 20 minutes.
Paul McDonnell of Hushabye farm in Killeigh says he was devestated to discover his OWN trailer was used during the robbery.
A Rad Rhino electric bike & trailer along with a large amount of garden tools and a ride-on lawnmower were some of the items taken Wednesday morning.
