According to Gardai shortly before 2.50pm this afternoon (Monday), two masked men walked into a shop at Bawnogue Shopping Centre in Clondalkin with what was believed to be a firearm. They threatened staff and took an amount of cash.

The suspects left the scene and went in the direction of the Lealand estate.
