GARDAÍ IN CLONMEL are appealing for information after a robbery in the village of Drangan on Friday evening.

It happened at Slattery’s Garage on Main Street at around 7.30pm, according to Tipp FM.

Staff were said have been left ‘very shaken’ after being threatened with a shotgun – but the men left empty-handed, fleeing the scene by car.

Anyone with information is being asked to contact Clonmel Garda Station on 052 6177647.

“They fled the scene and turned in the direction of O’Connor’s public house and they left down the Newtown Road,” Detective Seamus Maher told the local broadcaster.

“Both males are described as being around 5′ 10″, in their early 20s. They both wore balaclavas.”
