Gardaí hunt three after two separate bank robberies

Gardaí are still hunting for three men following two separate bank raids in Dublin this morning.

In the first robbery, two men wearing high-visibility jackets and balaclavas held up the Ulster Bank in Dundrum.

They threatened staff with planks of wood and what is believed to have been handguns.

The raiders made off with a quantity of cash, however some of it was later recovered nearby when a dye pack exploded.

In the second incident, one armed raider stole an undisclosed sum of cash from the Ulster Bank in Cloughran in north Dublin.

No one was injured in either incident and no arrests have been made.
