Great-Grandfather, 84, Fights Off Armed Robbers

An 84-year-old great-grandfather helped fight off some armed robbers at Bar One Racing bookmakers in Glanmire, Ireland, on Sept. 15 (more video below).

Denis O’Connor recalled to the Irish Independent how he helped shop manager Tim Murphy fight off three masked robbers:

I didn’t really think about it – I just went for it. When I saw them confronting him, I just acted.

The masked men — armed with hammers and a shotgun — demanded cash, but got nothing as they fled.
