    Just found out about this - happened yesterday morning. If you down to the woods today you might get a big surprise :)

    from RTE
    Their getaway car was discovered a short time later about 3km away in a wooded area at the Waterford Institute of Technology Carriganore Campus.

    In a follow up search, gardarrested five men.

    Gardaave not disclosed if the money taken in the robbery has been recovered, nor have they said if the gun has been found.

    Also someone should tell the Mirror that Clayboy is in fact very much NOT rural
    Five people have been arrested after a terrifying armed robbery at a post office in rural Ireland.

    Three masked men, one armed with a shotgun, stormed the building in Cleaboy, Co Waterford, at around 11.10am this morning.

    They threatened terrified staff and demanded money from behind the counter.

    The trio left the scene with a sum of money and made their getaway in a car, which was found burnt out a short time later.

    I suspect that the definition of rural for some Dublin journalists is anywhere past the Red Cow.
