Staff were ordered to open the tills by a man wearing a balaclava.

TWO PEOPLE HAVE been arrested after a robbery at a supermarket in Enfield, County Meath last night.

The robbery occurred at 9.40pm. They fled the scene in a car.

A man wearing gloves, a balaclava with a grey hoodie was armed with what appeared to be a handgun, entered the store and forced a staff member to open up the tills where he proceeded to take the cash.

No staff member or customers were injured.

Approximately two hours later, gardaí in Finglas stopped a silver Ford Focus on the N2 Finglas Road.

A man and a woman in her 40s were arrested. A quantity of cash was also recovered.

They are detained under Section 30 of the Offences against the State Act, 1939 at Trim and Kells Garda Stations.
