An 80-Year-Old Galway Man Absolutely Kicked This Burglar's Arse

The Connacht Tribune has reported that an 80-year-old man in Galway dragged a burglar from his home last September. 

The man returned home from mass with his wife to discover a burglar attempting to enter their house from the rear via a smashed window. 

The elderly man confronted the burglar, dragged him though the house and threw him out the front door. 

He is said to have had an "adrenaline rush" in the moment. 

However, the elderly couple are believed to have been greatly distressed and traumatised by the incident. 

Understandably so, but what a valiant act, all the same. 

We hope we can just about drag ourselves through the house at 80, let alone another person.
