Two men, thought to be from Derry are in garda custody after a taxi driver was hijacked at gunpoint in Dublin.
The men bundled the driver into the boot of his car in Smithfield just after midday.
They then drove to nearby Stoneybatter and lay in wait for a cash in transit delivery to a post office on Prussia Street.
When the van arrived, the men approached the driver and ordered him to hand over the cash, before abandoning the taxi on Queen Street.
The men were stopped by Gardai and the money was recovered.
