Gardaí are investigating an armed robbery in Nobber, Co Meath.
Two men, one armed with a baseball bat and the other with a handgun, entered the Centra store on Main Street around 7.20pm yesterday.

The raiders drove off in the direction of Navan.
One of the raiders dropped the firearm on the floor during the robbery and left it behind. It will now be examined.

The second raider wore a navy blue rain jacket with the hood down, grey tracksuit bottoms and navy Nike runners and white socks.
He was also wearing a dark-coloured woollen hat and a black facemask.
