GARDAÍ HAVE APPEALED for witnesses to an armed robbery carried out on a jewellery shop in Dublin city centre this evening.

Two men carrying firearms got away with three display trays of gold rings after they held-up a jewellery shop on Aungier Street in the city centre.

The two men entered the shop at around 5pm this evening, threatening staff before escaping in a stolen grey Opel Astra which was later abandoned on Aungier Lane.

Gardai are seeking witnesses and have issued descriptions of the two men involved who they say are aged in their 20s and early 30s.

One of the men is described as tall – well over 6 foot – and was wearing a blue balaclava, a sleeveless yellow high visibility jacket, a blue hoodie, jeans and runners.

The second is smaller in height – between 5 foot 10 inches and 6 foot – and was wearing jeans, a blue top, a sleeveless yellow high-vis jacket and blue hard hat.
