A POST OFFICE on Dublin’s Merrion Row was robbed earlier today after a man with a firearm threatened staff before making off with what Gardaí said was “a substantial sum of money”.

There were no injuries in the incident which happened at around 10am this morning before the man later made his getaway in a taxi.

After the robbery, the man is said to have walked to a nearby hotel where he got into a light blue coloured Skoda taxi which drove up Merrion Street and turned right onto Baggot Street.

The suspect is described as being “near 50″ with an English accent and he was wearing glasses, dark jacket and a hat.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone who may have seen the man described above acting suspiciously around Merrion Row, Merrion Street and in particular the taxi driver who picked the man described up to contact them.

They can be contacted at Pearse Street Garda station on 01 666 9000, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station.
