It happened in the Dublin Road area of the city at around 10pm on Saturday.

The armed pair ordered a staff member to hand over two till drawers, which contained a small amount of money.

They then made their escape in a dark coloured Avensis car which was later found burnt out close to a hotel in the Ravensdale Park area, Dundalk.

Police said the staff members were not hurt but were left shaken.

Anyone with more information has been asked to come forward.
