Shotgun wielding burglars rob Wicklow restaurateur
Four masked thugs armed with a shotgun tied up a restaurant employee before robbing a Wicklow restaurateur.
The owner of the Wicklow Heather restaurant in Laragh and his wife arrived home around midnight.
The woman noticed there was a group of men in the house and called gardai.
She then left but her husband was confronted by the masked gang who threatened him with a shotgun.
The men had earlier tied up an employee of the couple and waited for them to return home.
The raiders took a small amount of cash and a mobile phone before fleeing the scene.
There were no reports of injuries and no arrests have been made to date.
Gardai in Ashford are investigating.
