Two men have been charged in connection with an attempted armed raid on a post office in Co Wicklow yesterday.

The men, aged 20 and 21, went into the post office in Enniskerry at around 2.45pm armed with weapons and threatened staff and customers.

They left the building empty-handed and were arrested close to the scene a short time later.

No injuries were reported.

The men appeared in court this morning and have been remanded on bail to appear at Bray District Court on 9 June.
