A man has been arrested following an attempted robbery in North Kerry.
Shortly after midnight, a man entered a takeaway in East End, Ballybunion armed with what Gardaí believe to be an iron bar.
The man demanded money from the staff and damaged the cash register; he was unable to get any money and left the scene.
Gardaí from Ballybunion attended the scene and carried out a patrol of the area.
They arrested a man in his late 20s shortly before 1 o’clock this morning.
He is currently detained at Listowel Garda Station under Section 4 of the Criminal Justice Act 1984.
