A Killarney man whose wife was hospitalised following a break-in to their home on Christmas morning says the attackers were intending to kill.

Gardaí are investigating after four men broke into the O'Brien home in Ballyspillane at around 1:30am on Christmas morning.

A 68-year-old woman was taken to hospital following the attack, and her son, who suffers from epilepsy, was also allegedly assaulted.

The men also caused damage to the property, and Pat O'Brien, who suffers from cancer, said they intended to kill him and his wife.
