This man is an absolute badass! 

A CCTV video from a bookmaker in Cork has gone viral after a 83-year-old man stood up to 3 burglars. 

On Saturday, three armed men reportedly carrying a shotgun and two hammers, attempted to rob Bar One Racing in Glanmire, but eventually ran off by the one customer and employee.

Speaking to a local radio station in Cork, the employee, Tim Murphy said that the customer Dennis O' Connor was "a total hero and when I saw him taking one of them on he inspired me.”

He went on to say;

“I remember Denis just shouting, 'ye're cowards, ye're total cowards',” 

“Denis is a total hero and when I saw him taking one of them on he inspired me.”

“I was just being threatened by the two fellas with the hammers, Denis tackled one of them and I said I have to tackle this fella now.”

“I tried to grab the hammer but it was a total blur at the time,”  

“Once they were taken on at all they totally backed down."
