Gardai in Castleblayney are appealing for the publics help following an armed robbery in Blayney yesterday evening.
The incident happened at Bar One bookmakers on Main Street in Castleblayney at twenty-five past seven yesterday evening when two males, who were armed and masked, entered the premises.
One of them was armed with what’s believed to have been a hand gun while the other carried a baseball bat.
They demanded money from staff and escaped with an amount of cash, not believed to be substantial.
There were some customers on the premises as well as staff but no one was injured.
The two made their getaway in a Blue Nissan Car with Northern Ireland plates and a partial registration of E-K-Z.
The car was seen to head down Main Street in the Monaghan road direction.
Gardai are asking anyone who may have witnessed the robbery or who might have seen the Blue Nissan either before or after half past seven last night to contact them on 042-97-47900, or any Garda station.
