Share this article


Gardaí have seized two loaded revolvers and arrested four people as part of an investigation targeting serious criminal activity in the Dublin Region.

At about 4.15pm this afternoon, officers stopped two vehicles during an operation on Monastery Gate Avenue in Clondalkin.

During a search of the vehicles, the two guns were recovered - these will be subject to a ballistic examination.

Three men - aged 26, 28 and 29 - and one 28-year-old woman were arrested and are being held at Clondalkin Garda Station under Section 30 of the Offences Against the State Act.

The operation was conducted by gardaí from the National Drugs and Organised Crime Bureau supported by the Special Crime Task Force.

Assistant Commissioner John O’Driscoll - the head of Special Crime Operations - said: "The targeting of people, to kill or seriously injure, by organised crime groups continues.

"However, this activity is being tackled by members of An Garda Síochana in Special Crime Operations and other units, who are determined to protect life, seize firearms and arrest those involved”.
