A man has been caught on camera trying but failing to rob a Dublin post office this week.

Dressed all in black and brandishing a plastic bag and what looks like a bread knife, the man comes face-to-face with a woman waiting at the counter in Portmarnock.

She looks unfazed as he adjusts his balaclava.

After what appears to be a short conversation, he turns around and walks back out of the post office as the woman resumes her business at the counter.
