The AIB branch in Edenderry has been targeted by raiders for the second time in a month.

Two men are believed to have gained access to the bank on JKL Street through an unoccupied adjacent building.

The raid happened at around 5pm.

The men escaped with a significant amount of cash.

On 8 September the same bank was held up by two armed raiders who made off on a motorbike with an undisclosed sum.

Gardaí from Tullamore, Edenderry and the surrounding area attended the scene.
