Gardaí continue to question pair after seizing a loaded gun in Dublin

Gardaí are continuing to detain a man and a woman in Dublin, following an operation targeting gangland crime.

They were arrested after Gardaí seized a firearm and ammunition from a car they stopped in Ratbourne Village in Ashtown yesterday afternoon.

A loaded handgun, silencer, ammo, petrol canister and a halloween mask were uncovered, and the pair in their 30s were arrested at the scene.

The man is well known to Gardaí and believed to be connected to the Hutch family.

Recently, the Assistant Garda Commissioner revealed detectives have prevented around 40 murder attempts in the feud with the Kinahan cartel.

The pair are being held under Section 30 of the Offences against the State Act at Finglas Garda Station.
