Two men have been arrested following a bank robbery at Rathfarnham Shopping Centre yesterday.

A lone gunman entered the bank branch and demanded money from the cashier at around midday.

He left the bank with an undisclosed amount of money and was seen getting into a small blue car which was located a short time later.

No shots were fired and no one was injured.

In a follow-up operation this morning two men, aged in their 30s and 40s, were arrested in the Dublin 8 area in connection with the incident.
