The Cork home of Lord of the Dance creator and star Michael Flatley has been burgled.

A number of valuable items were taken, including a rare rhino horn worth over €200,000, while the family were at home in Fermoy. No one was injured in the incident.

Flatley (55) was reportedly playing a computer game with his son Michael Jnr and his wife Niamh was also in the house when intruders broke in yesterday evening, just after 6pm.

The family raised the alarm in the four-storey mansion, named Castlehyde, at the time of the robbery however the burglars got away before the Gardaí arrived.
