Four men are to appear at a special sitting of Longford District Court this morning

Four men are to appear in court this morning charged in connection with a late night burglary at Newtownforbes Post Office.

The men, all of whom, hail from the Dublin area, are due before a special sitting of Longford District Court at 11am.

They are expected to face charges following a break-in at the mid Longford post office shortly after 11pm on Wednesday night.

Gardaí arrested the gang sometime later after stopping a Honda Civic car on the main N4 at Aughadegnan.

Three of the men are in the early 20s while the fourth is aged in his late teens.
