Gardai have launched a major investigation following an overnight armed robbery at one of Donegal’s best known hotels.
Armed raiders targeted An Grianan Hotel in Burt in the early hours of this moring (Thursday).
Three men entered the premises at approximately 2.45am.
One of the gang was armed with a shotgun which they used to threaten a night porter who was on duty at the hotel.
The assailants targeted a safe and also took money from the hotel bar before leaving the scene with a significant sum of cash.
It is understood the whole incident lasted up to half an hour but there are no reports of any injuries being sustained by the staff members.
Gardai say they are appealing for witnesses to any suspicious behaviour in the area last night or this moring.
