TWO MEN HAVE been arrested after an armed robbery at a post office in Roscommon this morning.
The two masked men threatened staff and customers with a gun at the post office at Strokestown after entering at around 9.30am. The men stole an undisclosed amount of cash before fleeing the scene.
The men made their escape in a silver Volvo car which crashed on the road between Ballymahon and Lanesborough a short time later. The men, both in their 20s, were arrested at the scene.
The two are being questioned at Roscommon Garda Station and gardaí said investigations are continuing.
