No fire arm was used in the robbery, which is believed to have happened around 11.50am, and no injuries reported.

Gardai are still at the scene gathering information and while they can’t officially confirm the number of people involved, they are following a line of inquiry that two people robbed the van and left the scene in a small silver car.

The car is believed to have travelled out of the village, in the direction of Lidl.
