GARDAÍ IN CAVAN are investigating an armed robbery at a parochial house in Belturbet.
A garda spokesperson told TheJournal.ie that three men entered a premises on Bridge Street yesterday at approximately 6.45pm. One of the men was armed with a weapon and the three males threatened the occupants of the house and made their escape with a sum of money.
Gardaí said it was too early to establish whether the two incidents were linked but said that all avenues are being investigated by gardaí.
A PSNI spokesperson said police in Northern Ireland constantly liaise on incidents in border areas and would work with gardaí if a link was established.
