Three men have been arrested following an armed robbery in Co Dublin.

The men, armed with what appeared to be a firearm and wearing balaclavas, threatened staff at a shop in Lusk village at around 10.05pm last night, before taking a large quantity of money.

They were arrested as they left the shop and two firearms were recovered, along with the stolen money. A car was also seized at the scene.

The men, aged in their mid 20s to late 40s, are being held at Swords, Raheny and Clontarf Garda Stations.

No customers or staff were injured during the robbery.
