Investigations continue after attempted theft of ATM in Cavan

Investigations are continuing this morning after an attempted theft of an ATM in Cavan.

Three men - aged 25, 28 and 61 - were arrested and remain in custody.

Gardaí intervened while a digger was being used to remove a bank machine from the wall of a hotel in Virginia yesterday morning.

300-thousand euro in cash was recovered and further searches are expected to take place.

Gardaí say they believe it's linked to other ATM robberies in the north-east in recent months.
