Two men, from Kerry, are continuing to be questioned following the armed raid.
The pair were arrested in Beaufort following a major manhunt – they are being held in Tralee and Killarney Garda Stations.
Two gardaí were injured when their vehicle was rammed while in pursuit of the suspects – they were taken to hospital but were later released.
Seamus Moriarty, Kerry GRA representative, said the courage of these gardaí was exemplary:
Garda Moriarty said Kerry gardaí are currently dependent on regional support units in Limerick and Cork for armed back-up.
He said the GRA would welcome the re-opening of rural garda stations which have closed across the county.
Following yesterday’s arrests, searches are continuing for a possible third suspect in the mid-Kerry area.
Officers are also combing the region for stolen money, items of post and for a firearm used by the raiders.
