No shots were fired and no one was injured after the robber allegedly approached the security staff and threatened them with his weapon, before escaping on foot with the cash.

Gardai say that no arrests have been made but that investigations are ongoing.

The amount of money stolen is thus far undisclosed.

Gardaí have appealed for anyone with information to contact Kevin Street Garda Station 01-666 9400 or the Garda Confidential Line 1800 666 111.
