Darragh Berry

Gardaí are currently investigating two robberies that were carried out on individual bookmakers in the northside of Dublin on Sunday, 21st January. 

The Irish Independent is reporting that a Ladbrokes office in the Racecourse Shopping Centre was robbed at around 11am.

One person was armed with a knife while the other smashed the glass at the counter before escaping in a car after collecting a small sum of money.

The second robbery – which Gardaí believe to be unrelated to the first – a lone masked man threatened staff with a silver coloured handgun at the Paddy Power office on Strand Road in Portmarnock.

The man left the bookmakers on foot and managed to take a four-figure sum of cash with him. 

No one was injured in the attacks and Gardaí are currently examining CCTV footage and they have asked anyone with information to come forward.
