Tralee Gardai investigate Tralee robbery

The owner of a shop in Tralee which was robbed in a raid last night says staff and customers are recovering after the ordeal. A young man wearing a balaclava and armed with a knife entered the spar in Oakpark and held up staff. He made off with cash taken from the till. No one was injured in the incident which happened around 25 to 10. According to owner Louis Byrne, the robbery only took about 90 seconds before the raider fled on foot. Mr Byrne has particular praise for one quick witted customer.
