Three men in court in connection with firearms seizure

Three men are due before the Special Criminal Court this evening in connection with a firearms seizure in Dublin.

The men, aged in their 20's and 30's, were arrested at a house in Clondalkin on Saturday by gardaí investigating the activities of a criminal gang operating in West Dublin.

A loaded Ingrams machine gun was recovered at the time.

A woman arrested during the same operation has since been released without charge from Garda custody.
