Man due in court in connection with Dublin firearms seizure

A man is due in court in Dublin later this morning charged in connection with the seizure of firearms in Tallaght on St.Patrick's night.

Four shotguns and a revolver were discovered when gardaí on a routine patrol stopped a car for speeding.

Two passengers escaped but the driver was arrested and is due before Tallaght District Court at 10.30am.

In a statement yesterday, gardaí said that while on routine mobile patrol, they observed a vehicle driving at speed in the Tallaght area.

Following a short pursuit, the car stopped at Ardmore Gardens in Tallaght.
