Gardaí have arrested a man in connection with an armed robbery in south Dublin.

It happened just after 1.00pm on the South Circular Road when a man, armed with what was believed to be a hand gun, entered a premises.

He threatened staff and demanded cash. His face was covered in a white cloth type of clothing.

He then left the shop, heading down New Ireland Road.

Gardaí from Kevin Street and local units responded to the call and began a search.

They saw a man run into the bushes and he was subsequently arrested.

The 29-year-old is being held at Kilmainham garda station under section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act.

Gardaí say during a search of the area a firearm and a sum of money was recovered.
