This video shows the moment a group of thieves stole a safe from a Paddy Power store despite a garda station located just metres away.

In the video you can see a group of men dressed in black using a wooden plank to drag the safe into the car.

The shop’s alarm can be heard piercing in the background as the thieves drive off with the safe.

A local told that the shop alarm rang for half an hour before gardai arrived.

Google maps show the Paddy Power shop on Market square is just 81 metres away from the Gort garda station.

As this video shows a number of people entered the shop and made off with the safe containing a large sum of money.,+Barrack+Street,+Gort/Paddy+Power,+Market+Square/@53.0671277,-8.8206267,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m13!4m12!1m5!1m1!1s0x485b82abdadd5b23:0xedf819d53dd0e5e1!2m2!1d-8.8181839!2d53.0674349!1m5!1m1!1s0x485b82abca7280b5:0x95b230619ffefcbe!2m2!1d-8.818949!2d53.066814
