GARDAI are investigating an armed robbery at a petrol station in County Limerick.

Gardai are investigating a robbery which occurred on Saturday, February 17 at approximately 8.30pm at the Maxol filling station in Dromkeen.

A man wearing a balaclava entered the premises with what’s believed to have been a firearm in his possession. 

He demanded cash from the till and fled with a sum of cash towards the rear of the premises. 

No arrests have been made and investigations are ongoing.

Gardai at Pallasgreen are investigating and are "looking for any motorists who were driving by Dromkeen Stores last Saturday evening in or around 8.20 in the evening to contact them if they saw anything unusual".
