Last Saturday, three armed punks reckoned they could easily rob Bar One Racing bookmakers in Glanmire, Ireland. It turned out to be a terrible idea, as Denis O'Connor wasn't in the mood for their nonsense.
He quickly ousted the hapless trio from the premises, bull rushing and shooing them away with a bar stool. O'Connor displayed incredible bravery and impressive hand-to-hand combat skills while beating back the robbery attempt.

These robbers ought to be ashamed of themselves. According to eyewitnesses on the scene, O'Connor yelled, "You're cowards, you're total cowards," as he scuffled with the masked men.
Upon further analysis, it appears to be true. The robbers seemed shocked by the great grandfather's fearless attack, and they soon fell into a near panic and scrambled to escape the bookmakers.
Here's what O'Connor had to say about his heroic feat:
You can either sit down and do nothing, or take a stand. I decided to stand up to these people.
Bravo, Denis! But it's okay if you'd like to sit down after all that action last weekend.
Somebody get this man a recliner and a cigar!
