Gardai in Athlone have arrested three men in relation to a series of death threats made over social media in recent days.

The men were arrested after a number of searches were carried out in the town this morning.

Gardai had been searching for weapons that were displayed in the videos and the devices used to record them.

A number of electronic devices and weapons were seized during the searches.

Three men from the Athlone area were also arrested.

One of the men is in his late 40’s while the other two are in their 20’s.

Gardaí say the men may be connected to a recent serious incident in Co. Fermanagh, in which a 13-year-old girl was attacked with a machete.
