VIDEO: Tipperary publican attacks keg thief with umbrella

CCTV footage shows the moment a Tipperary pub owner attacked a would-be keg thief with an umbrella.

Pat Keller got a call last Sunday morning to tell him that a man was trying to break into his pub’s storage cage.

The video footage appears to show a man in a hoody attempting to break open the lock on the cage.

There seems to be over a dozen kegs inside.

Pat said the only weapon he could find on his way out of the house was an umbrella.

However he still managed to scare away the man, giving chase to him as he tried to escape from the premises.
