GARDAÍ IN CAVAN are investigating an armed robbery at a parochial house in Belturbet.

A garda spokesperson told TheJournal.ie that three men entered a premises on Bridge Street yesterday at approximately 6.45pm. One of the men was armed with a weapon and the three males threatened the occupants of the house and made their escape with a sum of money.

PSNI detectives are also investigating an armed robbery in Fermanagh last night whereby three men, one of whom was armed, entered a parish hall and demanded money from two women who were inside.

Gardaí said it was too early to establish whether the two incidents were linked but said that all avenues are being investigated by gardaí.

A PSNI spokesperson said police in Northern Ireland constantly liaise on incidents in border areas and would work with gardaí if a link was established.
