£10,000 stolen in armed raid


Armed raiders stole between £8,000 and £10,000 from John Street Post Office in Kilkenny yesterday morning. Two masked men, one of them carrying a shotgun, entered the post office at 10.30 a.m. and demanded cash.

The raiders escaped with the money in a Dublin registered green BMW car. Garda road blocks were set up around the city immediately following the raid.
