A Garda manhunt is underway for four raiders who stole an estimated €30,000 in cash from Sheehy’s Centra shop in Kilfinane, Co Limerick on Monday.

It’s believed the raiders stole the cash from a safe located in an upstairs room of the premises.

Gardaí discovered a number of bags of coins on the street outside the premises after the alarm was raised.

The masked raiders who smashed their way into the premises through the front door in the early hours of Monday, concealed their identity by wearing balaclavas.

Gardaí are currently reviewing CCTV footage from the shop and conducting house-to-house inquiries in the area in the hope of tracing the gang’s movements before and after the robbery.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Gardaí at Bruff (061-382940) or in Kilmallock (063-98018).
