Gardaí are appealing for witnesses following an armed robbery in Co Meath.

It happened at a supermarket in Clonee yesterday afternoon when two masked men held up security staff who were collecting cash.

One of the men was armed with a hammer.

The men grabbed a cash box and ran towards Main Street, and turned left into Clonee Court.

It is believed they had a vehicle waiting there, but gardaí say they have no exact details of how the men left the scene.

The raiders are described as being 5ft 6'' to 5ft 8'' and wearing black scarves on their faces.

Gardaí are appealing for anyone who was in the Clonee area between 12pm and 1pm to contact them.

They are particularly looking for dash cam footage from any vehicles that travelled in the area at that time.

Anyone with information should contact Ashbourne Garda Station on 01 8010600.
