Gardaí in Cork are investigating three armed raids this morning.
A number of men in their mid 30s and armed with knives raided a filling station in Fermoy and two shops - one in Glanworth and one in Watergrasshill.
Cash was taken in all three incidents which happened between 7am and 9.30am.
No one was injured and the men made off in a black Ford Kuga.
Gardaí are appealing for witnesses.
