Investigations are underway into two armed robberies which occurred within 20 minutes of each other.

On Friday two separate EBS premises were targeted.

At 10.50am a man armed with what appeared to be a pistol demanded staff open the till at the premises on Main Street Blackrock.

However a staff member tried to disarm the man who then fled the scene empty handed.

Meanwhile, just 20 minutes later in the EBS premises on George's Street Lower, in Dun Laoghaire a male pointed a handgun at staff and demanded money.

A large sum of cash was stolen and the man then fled the scene on foot.

Garda investigations are ongoing and no arrests have been made to date.
