Two masked men entered the Post Office on Wednesday and threatened staff with a knife. They demanded cash and fled the shop with an undisclosed amount of money, but as they were leaving they dropped the cash.

They attempted to make their getaway in a car which was parked outside, however, both raiders left on foot. It is believed that both men then stole a car but abandoned it a short time later.

Garda units assisted by garda air support immediately searched the area and arrested two men who are currently being detained at Ashbourne Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.

Investigations are continuing.
