GARDAÍ ARE TRYING to track down two men who carried out an armed robbery of a cash-in-transit van in the Blanchardstown area of Dublin at the weekend.

It happened in the car park of Blanchardstown Shopping Centre at around 12.30pm on Sunday, a garda spokesperson said.

Two raiders wearing blue boiler-suits and balaclavas approached the van and threatened staff. At least one of them had a handgun.
