Cllr Máire Hendron said: “I am appalled by this robbery. I am disgusted that somebody would rob the house of a 90 year old woman.
“I can not comprehend what would motivate a person to carry out this crime. These thugs must be taken off our streets.
“This must have been a very traumatic experience for this woman. My thoughts are with her at this time.
“I would urge anybody with any information about this robbery to contact the police.”
