Two men are due to appear in court this evening charged in connection with a robbery in Sligo on Thursday.

At around midday on Thursday, two men armed with a knife and hammer entered a business at Deepwater Quay in Sligo.

They threatened staff and demanded money. They left with a sum of money and no one was injured.

A car and items connected with the robbery were also seized for examination.

Both men are scheduled to appear before a special sitting of Sligo District Court at 7.30pm this evening charged in connection with the robbery.
