Two held after failed hold-up

Two men are in custody following an attempted armed robbery yesterday morning at a post office in Tallaght.

Two men pulled up outside the post office at Kilnamanagh in a red Toyota Corolla at about 10.55am. The pair, one reportedly armed with a hammer, went inside and demanded cash.

No money was handed over and the men fled the scene in the car, which was later found burned out at Treepark Road. The men, one his 30s and the other in his 40s, were intercepted by gardai.
