Simultaneous Ulster Bank Robberies In Dublin

Gardaí are searching for three men following separate raids on two Ulster Bank branches in Dublin.

Two armed men escaped from an Ulster bank outlet in Dundrum with an undisclosed sum of cash after entering the bank at around 10.00am.

It is thought that coincidentally, at around the same time, a lone gunman held up the Ulster Bank branch at Cloghran, near Dublin airport, and escaped with an as yet undisclosed sum of money.

Nobody was injured in either incident.

A Garda spokesman said it was not known what type of weapons were used in the raids and that both incidents were under investigation.

Last month an undisclosed sum of money was taken and a Group 4 Security employee was slightly injured in a raid on a cash-in-transit van making a delivery to the Ulster Bank branch in Cloghran.

In August, an armed gang robbed a cash-in-transit van making a delivery to an Ulster Bank branch at Killiney Shopping Centre in south Dublin.
