The three will appear in court on Tuesday morning.

Three teenage boys have been charged in relation to the alleged endangerment of gardaí in the Cherry Orchard area in Dublin.

They are to appear in court tomorrow, Tuesday. 

The three will appear before Dublin Children's Court on Tuesday morning at 10.30am.

Four teenagers were arrested earlier today, with one having been referred to the Juvenile Youth Diversion Programme, in accordance with the Children's Act, 2001.

The four were arrested as part of an operation carried out by Gardaí.

The alleged endangerment of gardaí and related incidents, which took place on September 19, sparked condemnation by politicians and local residents.

Footage of the alleged incident was widely shared online and showed a garda car being rammed.

A garda spokesperson said that the investigation into the endangerment of Gardaí and related incidents is ongoing.

"Gardaí continue to appeal to anyone with information to contact the incident room at Ballyfermot Garda Station on 01 666 7200, the Garda Confidential Line on 1800 666 111 or any Garda station," they added.
