Seven men arrested in connection with an armed raid at a family home in Tipperary earlier this week, have had their periods of detention extended.
The men who are all from Dublin appeared before Cashel District Court late last night.
Mark and Emma Corcoran and their three young children were attacked by a gang of armed raiders, who broke into their home in the early hours of Thursday morning.
The thieves stole cash and jewellery before escaping in two cars, one of which was the family's Kia jeep.
Five of the suspects were arrested near Naas in Co Kildare while two others were detained at Newland's Cross in Dublin following a high speed chase.
The men can now be questioned for another 48 hours.
