Shots were fired at uniformed garda officers during an attempted ATM raid in the early hours of this morning.

At around 3.30am gardai were alerted to an ongoing raid at an Ulster Bank branch in Enniscorthy.

Officers on a routine patrol were approached by a man carrying a handgun.

At least one shot was fired, however no one was injured.

A quantity of cash was taken during in raid.

The raiders fled in a dark coloured car in the direction of New Ross.

Local businesses on Rafter Street said that they were "surprised" to find the crime scene preserved as they arrived to work this morning.

"There's not too much damage from what I can see anyway," one man told The Herald.

"It'd be a quiet part of the town, and there wouldn't normally be too much happening around here at that hour of the night".
