Two men have been arrested following an armed robbery at a shop in Waterford last night.
One man entered the shop armed with a handgun, threatened staff and demanded cash at about 11.55pm.
The alarm was raised and the man fled in a dark-coloured car in the direction of the Cork Road.
No money was stolen and no one was injured during the incident.
In a follow-up search, two men in their 30s were arrested and a firearm was recovered.
Both men are being held at Waterford Garda Station.
