GARDAÍ HAVE RENEWED their appeal for information on a robbery in which a man with a gun stole cash from a service station in Cork.

The robbery occurred at the service station in Brooklodge, Glanmire, on Monday.

A man arrived at the scene driving a wine-coloured Fiat Punto, which had a partial registration of 98-D.

He entered the premises with a firearm at about 7.15pm.

He gained access behind the shop counter and demanded a staff member put money from the cash register into his bag.

The man exited the shop and fled the scene in the same car in the direction of Knockraha. This car was found abandoned at Templenacarriga, Midleton.
