Gardai have launched an investigation into an aggravated burglary which happened at an elderly couple's Dublin home.
It happened in the Templeogue Road area of Terenure this morning at around 10:30 am.
Three men gained entry to the house and restrained the elderly couple inside - a man and woman in their 70s.
The couple did not sustain any serious injuries.
Gardai say the men left the scene in a small white van.
They are appealing to anyone who travelled along the R137 Templeogue Road this morning to contact them.
